PEP education

Talk to your teen. There's no better resource than a supportive parenting adult. We know it can be difficult, and we're here to help.

Texas has the third highest rate of teen pregnancies and the highest rate of repeat teen births in the United States. Planned Parenthood education and outreach programs employ a three-part approach that engages parenting adult, educators, and peers to reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections in the communities we serve.

Parenting adult

Young people who talk with their parents about sex are more likely to postpone having sex and to make healthier decisions about sexual behavior. With the goal of educating parents and increasing communication at home to keep kids safe and healthy, Planned Parenthood launched the Talk First! or Hable Primero! bilingual parent education program.


All of Planned Parenthood's education programs are facilitated by professional health educators trained to provide age-appropriate, evidence-based information to the community. We offer health promotion and pregnancy prevention education to thousands of teens and parents annually at public, private, and charter schools; vocational schools, colleges, and universities; probation and detention facilities; shelters; and youth-serving organizations.


Planned Parenthood hosts programs where students are educated to become resources on topics of importance to teen health. Supervised by our health educators, participants then perform peer-to-peer outreach in schools and other settings.
