The Basement Teen Center has support from the VT Dept. of Health and VT Dept. of Education to present “Making Proud Choices,” an evidence-based curriculum that builds skills to prevent pregnancy and STI and HIV transmission. The course lasts for four weeks and runs twice a week from 4:30-6:00pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from November 13th to December 12th. There will be no class on the week of Thanksgiving- the calendars below are a visual representation of when the classes will take place and all classes will be held at the Basement Teen Center.

Teens that attend at least 6 of the classes in this free program receive a stipend of $100. We know that information alone won’t prevent people from high-risk behaviors, but evidence shows that having accurate information about the consequences of unprotected sex helps teens steer towards delaying sex and an increased use of protection if they do choose to have sex. Teens are welcome to participate regardless of whether they’re regular visitors to the Basement Teen Center.
