We’ve produced a second short video describing our experiences implementing the Teen Outreach Program™ with high-need foster care youth in Connecticut. TOP is the focus of an Office of Adolescent Health-funded demonstration grant promoting evidence-based approaches to preventing unplanned pregnancy with young people in therapeutic settings. These youth are at particularly high risk for both pregnancy and school failure, both of which TOP has been shown to impact in mainstream youth. Our project is one of the first in the country to use the model with young people receiving special services for emotional, behavioral and learning issues.
Watch the videos to find out what TOP is like, and to feel inspired about what’s possible.
