Ohio PREP Curriculum Objectives

The Ohio PREP curriculum objectives provide youth (ages 14-21) in foster care, residential placement, justice involved youth in facilities, on probation or in diversion programs, or those attending alternative schools with an informative, dynamic, interactive approach to abstinence, preventing unplanned pregnancy and protecting themselves from STDs and HIV. The youth will learn to demonstrate effective communication skills through role playing, group discussions, viewing DVDs and participating in games and group activities. Ohio PREP is utilizing the Making Proud Choices! (MPC) Fifth Edition curriculum from ETR Associates, an Evidence-Based, Safer-Sex Approach to Teen Pregnancy and HIV/STD Prevention.  Ohio PREP has improved the Adulthood Topics, which consist of Healthy Relationships to include consent, Financial Literacy to include mobile banking, and Career Building for job interviewing skills. MPC plus the adulthood topics are a total of 13 instructional hours. (see Ohio PREP updates).

 

The curriculum is not appropriate for youth with developmental disabilities or sexual offender status.

If you would like more information about PREP or have an interest in participating in the coalition meetings contact Molly Malloy, RN at (330) 489-3322 or .
