The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP)

Satisfactory Essays
In 2010 the federal government developed the first comprehensive sexual education state grant program. The Family and Youth Service Bureau started a program called the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) through which states can apply for a $250,000 yearly grant to provide education for youth on both abstinence and contraception. This program targets children 10-19 who are at social disadvantage and provides prenatal care and assistance to teenage mothers. PREP emphasizes healthy relationships, body positive development, diversity, financial literacy, communication skills and life skills. In 2014, PREP served over 94,000 youth in America. This one of a kind program may be a pivotal point in revolutionizing sex education in America.
