Options for Youth is a school based program that began in 2004. We currently collaborate with Evanston Community Partnership Programs. Options for Youth is one of the few adolescent programs in the country that emphasizes the delaying of a second pregnancy among teens, either male or female, who have one child. The primary goal of the program is to help young teen parents delay a second pregnancy, remain and graduate from high school, while developing an effective approach to contraceptive practice. Young parents involved in the program participate in giving back their communities and schools, role models and spokespersons to their friends and families about pregnancy prevention and health choices, and what it means to be a parent at an early age. These young parents reach out to share their experiences adn decisions with their “delay” message along with self motivation to become the best they can be for their child, family, & community.
