Are you doing interesting work with young people that we should know about? Have you conducted research that may be of interest to professionals working with pregnant and parenting teens? Do you have tips and information for providers on teen pregnancy prevention, sexuality education, or working with young families? Please consider submitting a workshop proposal for our annual Teen Pregnancy Institute, Beyond the Politics: Standing with Youth and Young Families in a Time of Controversy. The Institute will include the following Tracks: Advocacy/Policy, Program Planning and Administration, Supporting Expectant and Parenting Teens and Adolescent Sexual Health Education and Services.
The Institute will be held at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA on Wednesday, November 9th with 90-minute presentation times in both the morning and the afternoon.
