The Office of Adolescent Pregnancy Programs (OAPP) is pleased to host this year's Adolescent Family Life (AFL) Care Grantee Annual Conference at the Hotel Palomar/Waterview Conference Center in Arlington, Virginia, December 5 – 7, 2011. The theme of this year's Annual Conference is Optimizing Your Program. Maintaining and continuing program services, especially during challenging economic periods, is a major undertaking for all organizations. Grantees, however, have the opportunity to position themselves for success and longevity in the field of pregnant and parenting adolescents by building sustainable organizations.
The purpose of the 2011-2012 Annual Conference is to: (1) provide AFL grantees with practical strategies to develop and implement actions that will result in sustaining effective programs and services; (2) provide AFL grantees' staff with leadership skills that will boost their effectiveness; (3) enhance AFL grantees' knowledge, skills, and abilities in areas relevant to the needs of their target populations, such as program management, case management, and evaluation methodology and analysis; and (4) offer a platform in which grantees can share their program and evaluation findings with others. This conference will provide a professional forum to inform AFL Care Grantees of key issues and trends, as well as best practices to support their success in the adolescent health field for pregnant and parenting adolescents.
