Teen Pregnancy Prevention Council
The Teen Pregnancy Prevention Council is an advocate for youth health rights in New Haven. The Council works to:
• Identify existing community resources and uses them to support recommendations without duplicating services
• Improving data collection to generate regular progress reports on process and outcome measures
• Collaborate with the Board of Education towards creating a comprehensive health curriculum for the New Haven Public Schools
• Step up targeted outreach to males. Although girls have traditionally been the major focus of efforts to prevent teen pregnancy, the importance of targeting teen boys and young men is increasingly apparent to researchers, practitioners, parents, and others who work with youth.
