Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands (rural)
Project Overview: Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands (PPGNW) intends to reduce teen pregnancy rates, increase use of contraceptives, and delay initiation of sexual activity among rural, 9-12th grade youth by increasing parent-child connectedness, and increasing youth’s self-efficacy, knowledge, and skill related to sexual health and pregnancy prevention in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Hawaii. In order to achieve this goal, PPGNW implements LiFT, a program designed specifically for rural communities that brings 9-12th grade youth and their parenting adult together to share family values, strengthen family bonds, and talk about healthy relationships and sexual health.
