New Interactive, Online Community for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Grantees
The Family Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (APP) Program launched an interactive platform—the Exchange—for grantees, partners, and stakeholders to learn, connect, and create materials to increase the visibility and impact of efforts to prevent unplanned pregnancy among vulnerable youth. The Exchange allows grantees to share promising practices, data-driven strategies, and other information.
The interactive online community also includes an event calendar where grantees can find e-learning opportunities, conferences, and in-person trainings; a blog; and resources spanning topics that include healthy relationships and collaboration, preparing teens for successful transition to adulthood, adapting evidence-based programs to be culturally competent, peer mentoring, and more.
FYSB is within the Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Additional information about the agency's APP Program is available at http://www.acf.hhs.gov/fysb/programs/adolescent-pregnancy-prevention.
