In 2021, the Office of Population Affairs (OPA) launched the Youth Create! call for content created by young people who participated in OPA's grantee programs. Youth Create! 2021 focused on young people's experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) program, and their overall health. Youth from TPP programs across the country responded to the prompts below.
- What has helped you and other youth get through the pandemic?
- How has being part of a TPP program impacted your life?
- What does a healthy future mean to you and others your age?
Explore their submissions in full in the sections below. See a sampling of the submissions in the compilation video.
All the submissions are largely in their original form to retain the youth's authentic voice. Only video background music was changed to adhere to copyright laws.
