    • Workshops and informational programs for adolescents and parents of adolescents;
    • Programs for adolescents that promote healthy relationships and improve attitudes, beliefs, and knowledge around sexual health; and
    • Programs that utilize peer counseling or peer education techniques to prevent adolescent pregnancy.
  • Services to pregnant and parenting adolescents, including:
    • Programs intended to prevent subsequent pregnancies for parenting adolescents;
    • Programs that provide support and education to young parents; and
    • Programs specifically for young fathers.
