Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month
National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month (NTPPM) seeks to raise community awareness and support of effective teen pregnancy prevention initiatives. NTPPM offers an opportunity to mobilize young people and adults in the advancement of adolescent sexual health and access to appropriate services for teens. In addition to bringing immediate benefit to teens and young adults, NTPPM serves as a catalyst for year-round efforts to support effective pregnancy prevention strategies and programs.
The National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy is Coming!
Hundreds of thousands of teens nationwide are expected to participate in the twelfth annual National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy on May 1, 2013. The purpose of the National Day is to focus the attention of teens on the importance of avoiding too-early pregnancy and parenthood through an interactive online quiz.
On the National Day and throughout May, teens nationwide can go to StayTeen.org to participate in the popular National Day Quiz. The National Day Quiz delivers teen pregnancy prevention messages and challenges teens to think carefully about what they might do “in the moment.” The message of the National Day Quiz is straightforward: Sex has consequences.
Last year, more than a 700,000 people participated in the eleventh annual National Day. We hope that you will join us and make this year's event even more of a success.
