Narrative

Making Proud Choices! A safer sex approach to STIs, Teen Pregnancy, and HIV prevention. It’s an eight module curriculum that provides young adolescents with the knowledge, confidence, and skills necessary to reduce their risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV, and pregnancy by abstaining from sex or properly using condoms if they decide to be active. It is based on cognitive behavioral theories, focus groups, and the researchers’ extensive experience working with youth. Making Proud Choices! Is an adaptation and extension of the original Be Proud! Be Responsible! Curriculum in that integrates STI, HIV and pregnancy prevention.
