Get Help and Information
The Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program is funded by the State Abstinence Education Grant Program (AEGP) and the State Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) of the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) of the Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF).
The AEGP program supports decisions to abstain from sexual activity by providing abstinence education as defined by section 510(b) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. § 710(b)) with a focus on those groups that are most likely to bear children out-of-wedlock, such as youth in or aging out of foster care. The target group for this program is comprised of youth, ages 10-12 years old, with priority enrollment given to children and adolescents in foster care.
