Grants to Iowa nonprofit organizations and government agencies for youth education programs in eligible counties. Funding is intended to support programming geared for adolescents that will lead to the reduction of teen pregnancies, HIV, and other diseases while encouraging responsible decision making and healthy living for adolescents across the State.
The following 20 counties are eligible to receive PREP Services (a minimum number of 25 participants must be served per county): Black Hawk, Lucas, Cerro Gordo, Marshall, Cherokee, Montgomery, Clinton, Page, Crawford, Polk, Des Moines, Pottawattamie, Emmet, Scott, Fremont, Wapello, Henry, Webster, Lee, and Woodbury.
The purpose of the Personal Responsibility Education Program is to provide comprehensive sexuality education to adolescents with medically accurate, culturally and age appropriate, and evidence-based programming. PREP contractors will also address life skills to assist Iowa teens in making responsible, informed decisions and lead safe and healthy lives.
The Department is actively working to strengthen its capacity to address health inequities in Iowa. This program promotes health equity by implementing programming using a positive youth development (PYD) approach. PYD can be beneficial for all youth; it can be particularly effective when working with vulnerable and underserved youth. There is evidence that a focus on PYD, including social skills, may foster resilience and improve well-being among youth who may have been maltreated. Focus on developing one’s identity, discovering strengths, and goal setting has been demonstrated to be effective for youth who are part of racial/ethnic minority groups.
