Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program

The Gila County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program, in partnership with Gila County schools works with teens around Gila County to equip them with information and resources needed to gain important life skills and successfully transition into adulthood.  

Through free classes, parents are provided with the knowledge and skills they need to encourage their teens to say “no” to risky behaviors and “yes” to healthy decisions and a successful life.  Students and parents are provided with evidence-based curriculum proven to equip and strengthen lifestyle choices aimed at healthy living for both the teens and their families.  Our program provides the following programs/classes in schools throughout Gila County.
