Program Summary

Child Trends, along with their partners Identity and University of Maryland, proposes to implement and rigorously evaluate El Camino, a sexual risk reduction intervention developed for and with Latinx teens. The overarching goal of this project is to reduce adolescent childbearing and STIs and promote educational attainment and optimal health among Latinx adolescents. The proposed research will contribute to the limited number of culturally tailored sexual risk reduction programs for Latinx teens available for English- and Spanish- language implementation settings, and will be implemented in high-need high schools in Montgomery County, Maryland.
