Lessons Learned from the Community Coalition Partnership Programs for the Prevention of Teen Pregnancy—New—The United States has the highest teenage pregnancy rate of all developed countries. About 1 million teenagers become pregnant each year and most of those pregnancies are unintended. These pregnancies have profound economic, social and personal impacts on the teen mothers, their children, and society.
Since 1995, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has funded 13 community-wide coalitions, the Community Coalition Partnership Programs for Prevention of Teen Pregnancy, to reduce the incidence of teenage pregnancy through a youth development model. Phase I of this effort included a 2-year planning phase and Phase II is the 5-year intervention phase to be completed in September 2002. The proposed data collection is an evaluation of lessons learned from this demonstration project. The goals of the proposed data collection are:
- to provide evidence about effective long-term programs, their components, and approaches
- to identify best practices, practices to avoid, best investments, and how-to steps
- to inform the implementation of the demonstration program
- to inform the modification (if any) and expansion (if any) of the program
The data will be collected via interviews with key stakeholders from the hub organization (the one receiving CDC funding), its partner organizations, and the community during two 3-day site visits to each site. The second site visit will occur a year after the first site visit. If any key stakeholders cannot be present during the site visit, they will be interviewed by phone. There are no costs to Respondents.
