Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP)


Implementation of Evidence-Based Program in Multiple Settings

To have a lasting impact on reducing rates of teen pregnancy and disparities, youth should receive evidence-based TPP programs at multiple times over the course of their adolescence. Community Health Educators will implement the evidence-based TPP programs to scale with fidelity and quality in at least 3 settings. The settings selected for Bolingbrook include:

  • Middle Schools: Hubert H. Humphrey Middle School, Brooks Middle School, and Jane Addams Middle School
  • High School: Bolingbrook High School
  • Alternative School: Phoenix Experience

CDC Evidence-Based Curricula that have been selected for the program

  • High School Curriculum: Making Proud Choices! which includes 14 40-minutes modules
  • Middle School Curriculum: Making a Difference! which includes 13 40-minute modules

Establish a Community Advisory Group and a Youth Leadership Council

In addition, program staff will mobilize the community by engaging a wide range of community members to create and implement a Community Advisory Board and a Youth Leadership Council.  The purpose of the Community Advisor Group is to function as a leadership team to assist in raising awareness, educating, and building support in the community around the issue of teen pregnancy prevention.  The Advisory Group will work toward a shared vision and plan that pools and leverages local resources to enhance the ability of the Bolingbrook community to address teen pregnancy. The Youth Leadership Board will engage with the community’s youth and lead the community mobilization efforts. The youth will be critical for ensuring that the curriculum and strategies for implementation are relevant and a good fit for the needs of the community. The youth play a vital role in community mobilization, which will lead to a long-lasting impact.

Resource Guide/ Provider Referral Guide Development

Community Health Educators will work to maintain linkages and referrals to a network of organizations that can provide high-quality, youth-friendly health care and support services. Youth-friendly service providers will be included in a community resource and provider referral guide.
