Working with Diverse Communities Update

Happy Spring from JSI!


This winter we have worked with one Part A Grantee to conduct a root cause analysis with young men to better understand the context that influences their sexual and reproductive health behaviors. We will also be introducing Program H during the next Young Men's Program call and providing a training about it at the YEAH! Network conference in May. Program H engages young men in reducing STDs/HIV, teen births and violence against women.  


If you are interested in technical assistance related to involving young men in teen pregnancy prevention, please contact JSI.


For practical, evidence-based strategies to engage young men, check out this brief and excellent resource from Public/Private Ventures.
