The purpose of this project was to partner with a local community agency and locate funding sources for a grant to fund a teenage pregnancy prevention program. The goal of the program is to prevent, educate and reduce teenage pregnancy among foster care youth through comprehensive education. The goal will be accomplished through an evidence-based program that focuses on the strengths and struggles of the foster care youth. Foster care youth will benefit from having accurate sexual health information through peer advisors. This grant project seeks funding for the teenage prevention program for foster youth through The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH). The host agency is Human Services Association (HSA) a non-profit community based agency serving residents of Bell Gardens, California. Human Services Association will partner with the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family services to provide education for the foster youth in the prevention of teenage pregnancy. The submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
