Preventing Teen Pregnancy Among Marginalized Youth

Date: September 8, 2008

Developing a Policy, Program, and Research Agenda for the Future

Healthy Teen Network, with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, has long explored how to better meet the needs of marginalized youth and subsequently reduce their risk for early pregnancy and parenting. In 2008, a year-long effort included a review of the literature on what we know about today’s youth, their risk factors, and what works to prevent early pregnancy among those most marginalized; a one-day summit including a diverse set of experts in the fields of teen pregnancy prevention and youth development to discuss the state of the field and develop a set of policy, program and research recommendations for moving forward; and development of a brief paper which synthesized these findings.
