Travis County Teen Pregnancy Needs Assessment
"I just think the biggest thing is that--facilitate those conversations... in a safe place where people, like teens, whether male or female, feel okay to ask serious questions they might not know the answer to without being judged. "
The Healthy Youth Partnership conducted a community-wide needs assessment to better understand the supports and barriers within our community to prevent teen pregnancy. With our needs assessment, we collected data from teens, parents, and providers to determine what risk factors are most prevalent in the greater Austin community to assist our coalition and partner agencies in designing effective intervention strategies.
"Es de educar más que todo a la gente.”
