The database below includes interventions that have some evidence of success in changing behavior related to teen pregnancy. More specifically, the programs had to delay the initiation of sex, improve contraceptive use, and/or decrease teen pregnancy (including secondary pregnancy/births). More details about how the programs were selected for inclusion in this database are available here.
The strongest evidence of success comes form program evaluations that are experimental in nature—that is, participants are randomly assigned to treatment and control groups. The programs noted with an (*) were evaluated using an experimental design and were found to reduce pregnancy risk among those in the intervention. More information and resources about effective programs from The National Campaign are available on our Effective Programs webpage.
Because of the significant variety among these interventions, communities now have more choices and more opportunities than ever to find programs that suit local values, opportunities, and budgets. We encourage those considering using one or more of these interventions to review both the content and effectiveness of each intervention.
