Place Matters: Youth Perspectives on Teen Pregnancy and their Environments
The Teenage Pregnancy Prevention: Integrating Services, Programs, and Strategies Through Communitywide Initiatives Project created a video presenting teens’ perspectives on the unique contexts where they live, learn, work, and play and the influence these community factors have on teen pregnancy. JSI designed this video to be used with a diverse audience (e.g., youth, parents, evidence-based intervention (EBI) facilitators, school staff, healthcare providers, and community members). The aim of this video and its accompanying discussion guide is to raise awareness about community context influencing teen pregnancy, encourage communities to incorporate a social determinants of health approach to teen pregnancy prevention, and suggest six concrete actions to mobilize viewers in reducing risks and enhancing protective factors in their communities.
This is a video that Wil worked on while employed at JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc.
