Adolescent Family Life (AFL) prevention demonstration projects served youth between the ages of 9 and 18. These projects implemented innovative strategies aimed to the delay of sexual activity. Grantees provided intensive programs in the context of providing participants lessons in goal setting and life skills, while incorporating other youth development principles. Services were offered through a wide range of organizations that included school districts, community-based organizations, universities, and local health clinics.
All projects fostered strong interaction with parents for the purpose of strengthening the prevention message. These projects had strong evaluations to determine best practices in this field.
As of FY 2010, the AFL Program was not appropriated funds to support prevention projects.
