We work to improve the health and economic well being of individuals, communities and the state of SC by preventing teen pregnancy.
The South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy was founded in 1994 to combat increasingly high rates of teen pregnancy in our state. Today, we are nationally recognized as a thought leader and innovator among teen pregnancy prevention organizations.
Our objective is to build the capacity of local communities to address teen pregnancy within their own neighborhoods. Our dedicated staff instructs and assists community leaders who are helping teens make smarter decisions about reproductive health. We are transforming South Carolina by training youth-serving professionals, initiating communication with families, and advocating for grassroots programs that will educate and empower teens.
Because teen pregnancy is connected to other societal problems like poverty and education, prevention efforts have never been more crucial. Helping teens avoid pregnancy will increase available economic resources while giving South Carolina teens the bright future they deserve.
