PREP Curricula in Garfield County School Districts
What are the outcomes of sexual health education?
Garfield County PREP’s data consistently shows that imparting knowledge about sexual health DOES NOT encourage or infer permission for youth to go out and become sexually active. In fact, our results consistently align with the program outcomes that show students:
- delay sexual activity
- have fewer partners
- are more to much more likely to use birth control and condoms
- are more to much more likely to ask their partner to use birth control and condoms
Additionally, students get their questions answered. They become informed about reputable online and local resources and are gaining trusted adult relationships that provide a protective factor to their level of risk.
