DC Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy
February 18, 2011
The DC Campaign has been a leader in DC pregnancy prevention efforts for over ten years. They have encouraged and facilitated different teen pregnancy prevention organizations working in a more collaborative manner to acheive the common goal. The Campaign consistently provides important information regarding teen pregnancy resources, projects, advocay efforts, and scholarship to a host of youth serving agencies. This information makes it easier for us to support our youth in appropriate ways. The "Roundtable" discussions hosted by the DC Campaign are always very informative and thought provoking. They also provide excellent networking opportunities to meet other professionals in the field.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The recent "Roundtable" about the workings of the adolescent brain was very interesting and helped inform my approach to working with youth. It was extremely useful to learn the capacities of adolescent thinking so that I can better tailor my work with the youth to meet their developmental needs.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Get them more money so that they can facilitate more networking and collaboration meeting among the city's teen pregnancy prevention providers.
Professional with expertise in this field & I attend the Roundtable discussions and look to the DC Campaign for the latest information about teen pregnancy prevention.
