Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho
Project Overview: The goal of the Healthy Youth Collaborative is to reach a minimum of 2,000 youth across four communities in Washington by bringing evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs to scale. To achieve this goal, Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho implements Healthy Youth Collaborative programming within each community, in four different settings including schools (middle and high school), health centers, community-based organizations, and juvenile justice facilities. A curriculum has been chosen so that there is an appropriate evidence-based program for each of these settings.
