All4You! is designed to reduce the number of students who have unprotected sexual intercourse, which is associated with increased risk of HIV, other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and unplanned pregnancy. The program also aims to change key determinants related to sexual risk taking, such as attitudes, beliefs, and perceived norms. The All4You! program has two primary instructional components—a skills-based HIV, other STD and pregnancy prevention curriculum and service- learning visits in the community—that are integrated and delivered as a 14-session program (about 26 hours total). There is also an adapted version of the program, All4You2!. It is designed to reduce the number of students who have unprotected sexual intercourse and to change key determinants related to sexual risk taking, but does not include the service-learning component of the original All4You!. The target audience for both All4You! and All4You2! is students in alternative high school settings who are ages 14 to 18.

Advice from the Field
OAH has compiled lessons learned and advice related to implementation and cost implications of All4You! from TPP grantees. The information below is intended to provide useful tips and overall feedback that organizations should consider when choosing and implementing All4You!
- Because All4You!includes a service learning component, it’s important to familiarize yourself with local school district policies regarding taking students out of school for service learning activities and visits. Understanding these policies can make it easier to coordinate the logistics of transporting large numbers of students to service learning sites/locations.
Staffing and Professional Development
- Consider providing training on sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and infections (STIs) for new staff. All4You! addresses topics that require facilitators to have medically accurate knowledge of STDs and STIs.
- Consider providing trauma-informed care training for new staff. All4You! addresses sensitive topics, particularly for youth who have experienced trauma.
- Consider providing training for staff so they can learn positive classroom management skills if they encounter difficult participants. The typical training for All4You! may not adequately cover this.
Stakeholder and Parent Buy-in
- Emphasize that All4You!’s service learning component is designed to empower participants. This can help with getting buy-in from the schools and parents.
- Review All4You’s cost information (http://www.etr.org/ebi/programs/all4you/#calculator); it is comprehensive and will help to develop a realistic budget.
