National Campaign To Prevent Teen Pregnancy, Washington, DC.
To support faith communities in protecting teenage boys and girls from too-early sexual activity and teen pregnancy, the National Campaign To Prevent Teen Pregnancy's Task Force on Religion and Public Values has compiled these nine tips which summarize a wealth of experience and advice from faith leaders around the country. The members of the Task Force--religious and secular leaders representing a broad ideological spectrum and a range of faith traditions--hope these tips encourage religious leaders of all faiths and denominations to take on the issue of teen pregnancy in the context of their religious beliefs. A resource list of helpful books, lesson plans, and other educational resources available from a number of religious and secular organizations is also provided. (GCP)
