NVPCA’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program worked to promote safe, supportive sexual and reproductive health education to reduce unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections among adolescents 12-19 years of age through evidence-based education programs and community outreach.

NVPCA works with Federally Qualified  Community Health Centers around the State of Nevada to provide capacity-building assistance focused on the implementation of evidence-based curriculums targeted towards youth and families through clinic services and community partnerships. The programs targeted adolescents and parents/caregivers who reside in Clark, Washoe, Carson City, and Elko counties.

NVPCA’s TPP program is supported under a contract from the Nevada State Department of Health and Human Services through Grant Number 2001NVPREP from Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families.

Through the State Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) awards grants to State agencies to educate young people on both abstinence and contraception to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS. The program targets youth ages 12 - 19 who are homeless, in foster care, live in rural areas or in geographic areas with high teen birth rates, or come from racial or ethnic minority groups. The program also supports pregnant and parenting youth. 

Nevada’s Community Health Centers (CHCs) provide access to health care for adolescents and young adults. Several serve as NVPCA PREP subrecipients and continue to offer pregnancy prevention evidence-based programs for adolescents.
