About the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP)

Information about programs funded by PREP

Funded PREP programs are utilizing a variety of evidence-based sexual health education curricula, including the Teen Outreach Program®, Making Proud Choices!, and Get Real. Curricula include comprehensive sexual health education, communication and negotiation skill development, values exploration, puberty, and more.

All PREP programs integrate 3 additional adulthood preparation subjects:

  1. Healthy Relationships
  2. Adolescent Development
  3. Financial Literacy

These are included as lessons bookended before or after the curriculum, or through use of guest speakers from local banks, partnerships with other local community organizations, and youth community service projects.

The health outcome goals of the program are:

  • Decrease the teen birth rate among target populations in priority communities through increased access to evidence-based education.
  • Decrease STI incidence among target populations in priority communities through increased access to medically-accurate, age-appropriate programming.

The Personal Responsibility Education Program is federally funded through the Family and Youth Services Bureau of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
