Alliance for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention

The Alliance for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (AAPP) works to reduce the number of teenagers who are sexually active, contract and spread sexually transmitted infections, become pregnant and become teen parents. AAPP offers educational programs statewide for young people and their parents. It also serves physicians, educators, nonprofit groups and anyone else who provides care for teens and their families. Parental permission must be obtained before any youth can participate in our programs.

Be Proud! Be Responsible!

Be Proud! Be Responsible! is a six-module curriculum that provides adolescents, ages 13 to 18, with the knowledge, motivation, and skills necessary to change their behaviors in ways that will reduce their risk of contracting HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. This multimedia curriculum has been evaluated and recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention as a “Program That Works” and is intended to help young people make proud and responsible decisions about their sexual behaviors.

Making Proud Choices!

Making Proud Choices! is an eight-module curriculum that provides young adolescents, ages 11 to 13, with the knowledge, confidence and skills necessary to reduce their risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV, and pregnancy. Making Proud Choices teaches youth about the risk reduction gained from abstaining from sex or using condoms and other contraceptives should they choose to engage in sexual activity. Our goal is that participants will develop the skills necessary to make decisions that will result in positive life options.

Wise Guys

Wise Guys is a ten-module program designed to prevent adolescent pregnancy, empower young men to recognize challenges they may face in life, and give them the tools to overcome these challenges. Its major goal is to teach young men, ages 11 to 18, self-responsibility; especially in the area of sexual development. We want our participants to develop the skills necessary that will help them answer the questions: Who am I?; Where am I going?; and How do I get there responsibly?
