These videos features nine teens who tell parents in their own words when to start conversations about sex, how to start them, and what to say. Parents take note: teens want to hear from you about more than just body parts and biology. They want to know that you are there to love and support them and having a conversation about sex is just one more way to provide them with this love and support.
With support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Casey Family Services and Jim Casey Youth Opportunities, and in collaboration with Healthy Teen Network, The National Campaign hosted an interactive roundtable meeting in April 2009 to increase action by states and other organizations to reduce teen pregnancy among youth in and aging out of foster care. Part of that meeting included a panel discussion with a group of former youth in foster care sharing their perspectives on teen pregnancy. Hear what Jeremy, Jonnie, Lisetta, and Rob had to say (panel moderation by Kristen Tertzakian, Consultant for The National Campaign).
The National Campaign's Latino Initiative is working with the California Wellness Foundation and various California youth serving organizations to create user-generated media content about the issue of teen pregnancy in the Latino community.
