Purpose

This program provides funding for replicating effective programs designed to improve the overall health of adolescents and reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in communities with the greatest needs and disparities.

Program goals will be met by:

  • Ensuring areas of greatest need are targeted in an effort to promote equity in reaching optimal health and preventing teen pregnancy and STIs
  • Utilizing a systems thinking approach to identify multiple leverage points to maximize impact on promoting optimal health and preventing teen pregnancy and STIs
  • Replicating with fidelity effective programs and supportive services that are culturally appropriate, age appropriate, medically accurate, and trauma-informed
  • Applying the power of youth and community voice to ensure the project is of the highest quality and best fit for the community(ies) and population(s) to be served
  • Monitoring, evaluating, and improving the project; and using key performance measures to document the project
  • Communicating and disseminating information, successes, lessons learned, and knowledge

The Director of the Office of Adolescent Health will take the following factors into consideration when making awards:

  • Geographic distribution of projects
  • Diversity of settings and populations to be served
  • Representation of project sites in communities of varying sizes, including rural, suburban, and urban communities
  • Diversity of programs across projects
