2018 Facilitator of the Year
by Augusta Partnership for Children
TEEN PREGNANCY PREVENTION
Now You Know...
The U.S. teen birth rate is at an all-time low. As of 2016, the teen birth rate (20.3 births per 1,000 girls ages 15-to-19) declined 67 percent since its peak in 1991. This represents a 9 percent dropfrom 2015. Downward trends span all 50 states and all racial and ethnic groups. 

Yet despite plummeting rates, teen pregnancy and birth rates for teens ages 15-to-19 in the U.S. remain among the highest of industrialized nations. Roughly 1-in-4 girls will be pregnant at least once before age 20. And about 1-in-6 teen births is a repeat birth. In addition, significant disparities in teen birth rates persist across racial and ethnic groups, geographic regions, rural and urban areas, and age groups.     

Adolescent pregnancy and parenthood are associated with social, health and financial costs to teen parents, families and states.

IT'S COMING IN 2018... OUR POVERTY INITIATIVE!

"HELPING PEOPLE OF ALL AGES ENJOY AN ENRICHED LIFE"

OUR YOUTH NEED US

We are living in challenging times. Against this backdrop, our young people are trying to discover who they are and how they fit into this fast-paced society.  Unfortunately, they are also being exposed to increasing pressures (from various sources) to become sexually active at an early age.  In addition to these pressures, some of our youth are preyed upon and have their innocence taken against their will.  We believe that normalizing sexual activity among our youth is not conducive to productive and successful educational or economic futures.  However, we also recognize that for many young people, early sexual initiation has become a sobering truth in their lives.  GrantWest Enterprises, Inc. provides evidence-based interventions that assist young people between the ages of 10-24 in navigating these challenges while providing a non-judgmental approach that embraces them at whatever point they are in their lives. We provide tools to assist them in making responsible decisions and experiencing successful futures.   Our vision is to assist people of all ages in ways that help them enjoy an enriched life.
