Identity’s teen pregnancy prevention program for Latino youth, entitled Be Yourself, is featured in a March 29 Washington Post article. Be Yourself is an after-school program for Latino students that teaches students the importance of setting goals, equips them with conflict resolution skills, and boosts their self-esteem through fun group activities.
Be Yourself is implemented in collaboration with Montgomery County Public Schools, George Washington University, and Mary’s Center, a DC-based nonprofit. The program forms part of a study being evaluated for its efficacy in reducing teen pregnancy and potential for replication, and is expected to reach over 1000 youth during its three-year implementation phase.
