Reducing Hispanic Teenage Pregnancy and Family Poverty: A Replication Guide. Final Version.
Perez, Sonia M.; Duany, Luis A.
This guide was designed to help Hispanic American community-based organizations develop and establish a teenage pregnancy prevention or teenage parenting program for Hispanic American adolescents. The guide does not assume prior knowledge of the scope of the teenage pregnancy problem in the United States, but it does underscore the critical role that Latino community-based organizations can play. The guide is designed to assist organizations that have little or no experience with pregnancy programs and offers step-by-step guidance in developing and implementing programs. The guide is divided into four chapters and one appendix as follows: (1) "Chapter 1: Introduction" provides an overview of the topic of adolescent pregnancy with an emphasis on the impact in the Latino community; (2) "Chapter 2: Three Latino Community-Based Model Programs for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention and Parenting" provides thorough description and details about the programs on which this guide is based; (3) "Chapter 3: Developing an Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention or Parenting Program for Latino Youth" offers suggestions about what organizations should consider as they decide among types of programs; (4) "Chapter 4: Organizational and Printed Resources" provides a comprehensive list of resources available for organizations to understand and address the issue; and (5) "Appendix: NCLR (National Council of La Raza) Worksheets" provides eight worksheets designed to help organizations gather information and assess the needs of Latino youth.
