We’re starting another round of PREP (Personal Responsibility Education Program) very soon – please help us get the word out!

The Basement Teen Center, underneath City Hall, will be holding four weeks of its Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Course starting on September 5. The course is for people age 13 and over. The course, held from 4:30-6 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from the 5th until the 28th, is funded by the VT Dept. of Health and VT Dept. of Education and works to equip young people with the skills they need to be personally responsible when it comes to dating and sex. We discuss some classic sex-ed topics as well as healthy relationships and dating, delay and refusal skills in regards to sex, that most teens choose abstinence, and teaching the use of contraceptives to reduce the risk of HIV, STD, and unplanned pregnancies.

Please print and fill out the permission form below, or come to the Basement Teen Center any day between 2 and 6 to fill one out.  Thanks!

Please help spread the word about this valuable course. Teens that complete the course will receive a $100 stipend at the end, and we’ll provide snacks every class session as well. Parents/guardians do need to sign a permission form before the first day of class and register their teen by emailing me at peley@wcysb.org.
