Making Proud Choices! (MPC) is a popular evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention program that had not been rigorously evaluated since one initial study in 1998. In 2017, OPA launched a new study to assess the program’s effectiveness.
This study used a cluster randomized controlled trial design and included 31 randomized clusters and more than 2,800 youth in 9th and 10th grades. Data was collected at baseline and six-months after the end of programming.
The study found that MPC had statistically significant and favorable impacts on 9 of 10 risk and protective factors and a statistically significant and favorable impact on one sexual behavior. Find more information in the evaluation report and fact sheet.
