Power Through Choices is the only adolescent pregnancy prevention curriculum developed specifically with and for youth in out-of-home placements. Research has shown that youth in foster care or juvenile services are far more likely to become pregnant or get someone pregnant than youth who are not in those systems. To support and educate youth, Power Through Choices focuses on meeting young people where they are and working to build trusting relationships, understanding that they may have had very few trusted adults in their lives.
Power Through Choices remains the only teen pregnancy prevention curriculum developed specifically with and for youth in out-of-home placements.
A revised edition of the Power Through Choices curriculum was evaluated through a rigorous, multi-year study funded by a Personal Responsibility Education Innovative Strategies grant from the HHS/Administration for Children and Families. The outcome findings documented Power Through Choices as an evidence-based program.
Our approach is trauma-informed, understanding that these youth are in a state system of care as a result of an array of adverse childhood experiences.
The Power Through Choices team is a talented group of staff members who have a wealth of project administration, program facilitation, data collection and communication skills.
