The Prevent Premature Fatherhood program provides comprehensive, evidence-based programming services to teen males ages 12-19 to improve outcomes related to teen fatherhood. Young men know less than young women about the risk of pregnancy, STD/HIV and birth control methods. Thanks to funding from the Cuyahoga County Fatherhood Initiative, over 9,000 young men, parents and community members have participated in this program since its start in 2006.
Organizations can choose to engage in the 4 part series including facilitated discussions on the following topic areas:
Passages to Manhood
Masculinity & the Media
STI’s & Pregnancy Prevention
Prevent Premature Fatherhood programming can be scheduled for youth at your school, church, or organization. All youth will be provided education, resources and food! Contact 216.201.2001 x1517 to schedule today!
STIs & Pregnancy Prevention
Providing young men with information regarding STI transmission & prevention is a cornerstone of the program and will be provided to all participants who engage in services. Dialogues explore the male role in reproductive health and the responsibility of becoming a father. Information given to the young men encourages them to take ownership of their reproductive health. We provide local resources for where to access reproductive health services and encourage this practice among participants.
