Proceedings of a conference on adolescent pregnancy are presented in this document. Eunice Kennedy Shriver's opening address, in which she urged the building of "communities of caring" is summarized, as is the address by Gina C. Adams who discussed recent findings on the topic of adolescent pregnancy. Several programs developed to address the problem of adolescent pregnancy are described: (1) school-based programs (Judith E. Jones); (2) ameliorative programs (Freya L. Sonenstein); (3) across-from-school clinics (Laurie S. Zabin); (4) the Too Early Childbearing (TEC) Network (Anita Mitchell); (5) an array of interventions (Cheryl Davis Hayes); (6) comprehensive programming (Lorraine Klerman); and (7) Project Redirection (Barbara Blum). The state experience is examined by Linda Reivitz (Wisconsin), Agnes M. Mansour (Michigan), Gregory L. Coler (Illinois), and Cesar A. Perales (New York). Three workshops are described which were organized in the areas of Ethical Issues and Concepts (Linda A. Wolf), Interagency Coordination (Robert Fulton), and Media Relations (Clifton H. Jolley). The final section of the document presents conference recommendations for what the states, the American Public Welfare Association, and others can do to combat the issue of adolescent pregnancy. (NB)
