Title:Reducing Teen Pregnancy Among Latino Youth: A Beginning
Grant Type: Activation Fund
The Spanish American Center plans to assess the causes and potential remedies for early childbearing among Latino youth in North Worcester County. The project will gather information from pregnant or parenting teens (under 18 years of age), Latino youth (14-16 years old) who are not pregnant or parenting, Latino parents of teens (who have/have not become grandparents), and Latino professionals who work with youth. The project design will include a literature search, focus groups, confidential surveys and one-on-one interviews. The goal is to identify a risk-reduction curriculum that can be modified as necessary and piloted with the Latino teen community.
