Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month

Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month

The purpose of National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month is straightforward. Too many teens still think, “It can’t happen to me.” The resources we provide during the month of May (and beyond) help teens understand that they can control their futures and avoid risky behavior. We want teens to understand that they have the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to become pregnant and that they need to think seriously about what they would do in a stressful moment of peer pressure.
