We’re scheduling for PREP

PREP [Personal Responsibility Education Program] is an evidence-based curriculum that builds skills to prevent pregnancy and STI and HIV transmission, thus “PREP”ing teens to make healthy decisions when faced with confusing scenarios and pressures. The course will be virtual, running from 5 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from Monday, June 22nd – Wednesday, July 7th. The course is open to all youth 12-18. We ask that participants be prepared and committed to engagment in the activities and mature discussions, keep their screens on when possible, set up in a space where they will feel comfortable sharing without distractions. Teens that attend at least six of the eight classes in this free program for the first time receive a stipend of $100. All participants will require a completed parental permission form before they can participate. Email Robert or Kate at for a permission slip.
