Discussion 
Results suggest that Making Proud Choices! and Be Proud! Be Responsible! can improve system-involved youths’ sexual health knowledge, and attitudes towards condoms and birth control across JJ and FC settings. Outcomes may depend upon facilitators’ training in trauma-informed care and “green light” tailoring modifications to adjust language and approach to be more trauma-informed.
