Project Overview: The Oakland TPP Initiative will implement the evidence-based Reducing the Risk curriculum, targeting 500 high-risk youth ages 14-19 in Oakland, California. The clinic locations for this project include the school-based health center (SBHC) at Castlemont High School in East Oakland, the SBHC at McClymonds High School in West Oakland, and the Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland’s main teen clinic in North Oakland.

The project will also focus on increasing the percentage of teens practicing abstinence, improving teen attitudes towards delaying sexual activity, increasing knowledge and understanding of sexual risk-taking behaviors, and increasing teens’ understanding of strategies to reduce risk of pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease transmission.
