A process evaluation focused on the efforts of target grantees and their key partners to educate community stakeholders in teen pregnancy prevention communitywide initiatives. There case studies documented the extent and quality of stakeholder education capacity building activities, strategic planning for stakeholder education and the implementation and lessons learned of several important stakeholder education strategies.
Several stakeholder education strategies can be employed to increase young people's access to evidence based teen pregnancy prevention programs:
· Community and school needs assessment data collected from focus groups with students, parents, school can point to a need for programs.
· Technical support to key school district personnel can help schools review, discuss, and select an evidence-based program that best fits their student body.
· Teacher training, tools, materials, curricula and ongoing assistance can help schools implement, evaluate and sustain evidence based teen pregnancy prevention programs.
