Program Summary

Healthy Futures is a three-year program that uses a multi-level approach that aims to empower sixth to eighth grade adolescents to avoid the health, social, and psychological consequences of risky decisions. The program seeks to meet this goal by increasing the knowledge, skills, and self-efficacy necessary to delay sexual activity and reduce the risk of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, as well as increase parent-child communication. 

Healthy Futures incorporates classroom-based education, peer education through after-school and summer programs, parent education workshops, school and community connections, and web-based resources to meet these aims.
