About this grant

For more than a decade, the Carrera teen pregnancy prevention program has been helping youth develop the desire for a productive future by avoiding pregnancy and making responsible decisions. In 2001, the Children’s Aid Society launched a five-year plan to grow and expand the program nationally. The goal of the plan is to optimize the number of participants at each site, thereby reducing the incidence of teen pregnancy in each urban setting where the program operates.Second-year funding will support ongoing development of technical capacity at the southeast Florida regional training center and the development of new Florida local replication sites; continue to build Baltimore, Houston and Indianapolis as future regional training centers; and refine and maintain the management information system.Accomplishments during the first year included establishing the first regional training center in southeast Florida and providing ongoing training and technical assistance; initiating four new local replications in Florida, Baltimore and Houston; and developing a management information system to track the program.
