Program Description:

Delta Futures II is an offshoot of DHA’s successful Delta Futures Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program that empowers teens in Delta school districts to make the right decisions by teaching them about sex, teen pregnancy and prevention, and sexually transmitted diseases. Delta Futures II targets adolescent teens who are either in college, a workforce training program, or working toward their GED, and uses “peer educators” to teach other young people about teen pregnancy and prevention. Trained college upperclassmen who have demonstrated leadership skills are selected to conduct classes two hours a week over four sessions on participating college campuses. Program participants learn about pre-conceptional health, risk reduction, the importance of delaying pregnancy, and the effects of their actions on personal and a potential baby’s health. Students can enroll and consent to the program through the peer educators on each campus.
