Reducing the Risk curriculum

Program Type: Resources - Information or materials that might help develop a program/project in a community but can not be defined as a Best Practice, Promising Practice, or Local Effort.

Description:
The Reducing the Risk curriculum was developed in 1988 to help lower the rate of teenage pregnancy and exposure to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The school-based curriculum helps teens understand the personal responsibilities and consequences of sexual activity and develop and practice the decision-making, negotiating, and refusal skills needed to resist negative social pressures regarding sexual contact. In addition, the program aims to strengthen parent-child communication about issues related to sexual activity.
