Have known HTN since around 1999, when the were still NOAPPP. They put on a great annual conference that is really without peer as a regular venue for getting evidence-based programming for teens into the hands (and hearts and minds) of the actual educators who work with teens everyday. These conferences and many other resources also reach policy makers, managers, funders, and researchers. I've since served on their board and think they are a

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?

Very Well

Life-changing

Will you recommend this organization to others?

Definitely

What is unique about this organization?

It's the only national nonprofit that focuses significant attention on the needs of teen parents & preventing subsequent births. This is key because teens with one child can get their lives back on track but repeat teen moms have much worse outcomes. They also do great work in primary prevention.

As a pediatrician caring for very young teen mothers in 1992, I stumbled across HTN, then known as the National Organization on Adolecent Pregnancy and Parenting (NOAPP). I was so grateful to find a group of professionals that understood me and the patients I served that I joined immediately and also over the next years became involevd with leadership of the organization. I have watched the organization grow and evove and become the most important national organization for prenant and parenting teens. Kudos to Pat Paluzzi and her team- awesome work!!

I have been invovled with Healthy Teen Network since 2002, when I attended my first conference. Their trainings and conferences are always excellent, and the resources they provide are useful and very relevant to the work I do. I was so impressed with the organization that I volunteered to become a member of their Board of Directors, which has been a very good experience for me!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own professional development, and by using the materials they create in my advocacy work, trainings, and as a resrouce for writing grants and reports on adolescent health.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand services so more people could take advantage of them.
