Alexandria Campaign on Adolescent Pregnancy

Mission

To prevent adolescent pregnancy through culturally and age appropriate education, advocacy, technical assistance, direct service prevention programs and public awareness.  Collaboratively, we work with our young people, their families and the community to secure brighter futures.

About

The Alexandria Campaign on Adolescent Pregnancy does this by:

  • Creating and conducting public awareness campaigns encouraging parent-child communications, abstinence and safer sex messages
  • Using innovative technology and creativity to reach out to and engage youth – Teen Text Message Line, http://keepit360.org/, Get Real magazine, and podcasts
  • Partnering with City youth, parents, agencies, and community-based organizations to provide opportunities and comprehensive prevention services for adolescents and their families
  • Providing resources, support and programs with and for adolescents, families, and citizens of Alexandria
  • Providing training and technical assistance on adolescent pregnancy and sexual health issues with and for youth, families, and professionals

Critical to our success is the ability to organize our community in pulling together – city agencies, organizations, and citizens, including parents and youth.  Together we can help young people see the possibilities in their lives if they avoid pregnancy and fatherhood during their teen years.
