The ABC's of Preventing Teen Pregnancy

What's it about?
Did you know that in the City of St. Louis the teen birth rate is more than double the national rate? Teen parents face daunting problems, including higher unemployment, poverty, and an 80% high school dropout rate. Do you know how to wait to become a parent until you are ready?

What will you learn?
Through facilitation and an interactive presentation, participants learn:

  • The magnitude of teen pregnancy, locally, nationally and globally,
  • The educational, psychological, social, emotional, financial and physical health consequences of teen pregnancy and parenthood, and
  • How to not become parents until they are ready.
