TOPS Receives OAH Award

TOPS has joined Tucson community partners Child and Family Resource Center, Sunnyside Unified School District, and Planned Parenthood Arizona to form the Tucson Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition. In July 2015, the Coalition was awarded a 5 year, $4.3 million dollar contract by the Office of Adolescent Health to provide essential, evidence-based sexual health education to middle and high school students in the Sunnyside district.

Providing youth with evidence-based sexual health education has been proven to both delay the initiation of sex, and increase safe sex practices to reduce STI infection and teen pregnancy. TOPS is looking forward to this partnership and the opportunity to potentially change the outcomes for many young people in Tucson by providing this essential education.
