Program Summary

Prime Time, an 18-month youth development program, was created by researchers from the University of Minnesota Prevention Research Center to prevent pregnancy among vulnerable teens. Prime Time combines personal case management and peer educator groups, delivered in tandem. The program seeks to build skills, confidence, motivation, and supportive relationships that every teen needs to succeed, with a focus on responsible sexual health behaviors. Prime Time was designed for use by health clinics.
