Teen Health

  • Providing pregnancy prevention education primarily to rural Latino families in the Arizona counties of Graham, Greenlee, La Paz, and Yuma and in Imperial County, California. Education and support were delivered through community events, peer support networks, media campaigns, and an evidence-based curriculum for youth and parents. These efforts were made possible through funding from the Administration for Children, Youth and Families.
  • Educating middle and high school students in Yuma County, Arizona about pregnancy prevention, condom negotiation skills, and sexually transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS, with funding from the Arizona Department of Health Services. NCHP utilized a variety of methods to conduct educational programs, including health fairs, parent outreach, media (video) campaigns, and a school-based curriculum.
  • Utilizing funding from Centers for Substance Abuse Prevention to conduct the "Vecinos/Neighbors" project in the Arizona counties of Cochise, Yuma, and Santa Cruz. Over 165 prevention programs and evidence-based interventions were delivered on topics including teen pregnancy, substance abuse, HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, and youth delinquency.
  • Implementing Worth the Wait curriculum with 11-17 year old students in Dateland, Arizona as well as La Paz County, Arizona through funding from the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS). Other activities include making tutoring available for students receiving a “D” or lower in an academic subject, educating parents using Choosing the Best—Parent Prep curriculum, and organizing Youth Ambassador Club (YAC) activities during summer months.
  • NCHP helped teams from the Young Ambassador's Club to use media to promote and make positive decisions regarding their health and well-being. Participants were provided with information on sensitive issues related to premature sexual activity, drugs and alcohol, and juvenile delinquency.
