Information About The Alliance for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (AAPP)

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.

Our Staff

Sharde Morris-Tate:

I am the Program Coordinator for AAPP. I have been educating for over two years and it is a very rewarding position! What I love most about being an educator is the look on the faces of the youth when they’ve learned something new and their growing curiosity for knowledge and understanding at every session. When it comes to educating the youth, I like the quote “Never be afraid of not knowing. Find out.” -Lauryn Hill, it exemplifies the fearlessness of a young mind learning new information to benefit  their future!

I am the newest Community Educator to the AAPP team! I come from a clinical background of 12 years and have always had a passion for helping others as well as educating. I stand by the phrase “reach one teach one”. There is nothing more gratifying than knowing that I may have positively impacted our youth by giving them education and skills to navigate throughout their lives!
