Teenage Pregnancy Prevention

Empowerment Groups
Ashland Parenting Plus provides small group education for teens regarding sexuality, reproductive biology, relationships, communication, career information, budgeting, and high risk behaviors.  These groups meet in high schools and middle schools throughout Ashland County for most of the school year, as well as supportive mentoring throughout the summer.  These groups are funded through a grant from the Ashland County Department of Job and Family Services as well as Ashland County United Way.

For more information, contact the director or your school’s guidance counselor.  You can also find more information about teen pregnancy prevention at www.teenpregnancy.org.
