Community Engagement Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program
Last Reviewed

In September of 2010, a partnership between the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) awarded grants to state and community-based organizations to demonstrate the effectiveness of an innovative multi-component and community-wide initiative in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and birth in communities with the highest need. As part of this initiative, CDC also funded five national organizations to provide training and technical assistance to all grantees funded under this initiative. This webinar features presentations from two grantees and one national organization funded to provide training and technical assistance on community mobilization and sustainability.
