NJ-PREP-webThe Partnership’s New Jersey Personal Responsibility Education Program (NJ PREP) aims to reduce the rates of teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection (STI) within the state. The program educates young people between the ages of 10 and 19 on abstinence and contraceptive methods to prevent teen pregnancy and/or STIs.

The primary goal of NJ PREP is teen empowerment– training adolescents to reduce their risk of unplanned pregnancy and prevent HIV and other STIs. NJ PREP helps communities with ongoing health education efforts by enabling teens to make safer and healthier decisions about their futures.

NJ PREP benefits families and the community by instilling these qualities:

  • A stronger sense of pride and responsibility in making a difference in their lives
  • The need for healthy relationships throughout their lives
  • A stronger intention to use safer sex practices should they choose to have sex
  • Increased confidence in their ability to negotiate safer sex
  • The ability to reduce incidences of HIV/STI risk-associated sexual behavior
  • Increased knowledge about prevention of pregnancy, STIs and HIV
