The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy (The
National Campaign) and American Public Human Services Association
(APHSA) and the John Burton Foundation (JBF), with support from the
Conrad N. Hilton Foundation are partnering in an "Integration of Youth Pregnancy Prevention into County Foster Care Systems" project. The project partners are jointly presenting an Institute that combines learning from experts, peer-to-peer support, and intersession technical assistance to help teams from up to six California counties incorporate youth pregnancy prevention practices into their core programs for foster youth. The project's ultimate goal is for practices that are customized for foster youth to become value-added components of day-to-day practice in child welfare agencies in California.
The Institute will help teams from up to six California counties incorporate
pregnancy prevention strategies into the services they provide to youth in foster care. For counties who have initiated this work,the Institute is an opportunity to fully implement the work. The Institute will also help teams develop a county-specific policy regarding the reproductive health needs of youth in foster care.
