Project HOPE

Project Hope

Project HOPE (Helping Oakland and surrounding areas Prevent Teen Pregnancy via Education) is a multifaceted, community driven teen pregnancy prevention program that utilizes a variety of approaches and strategies to:

  • reduce teenage and unintended pregnancy
  • promote healthy youth development
  • increase communication between youth and their parents or other caring adults

Project HOPE is supported by an Office of Adolescent Health-Teen Pregnancy Prevention grant. The heart of the grant lies in the fundamental premise that community-driven approaches to teen pregnancy increase community ownership of solutions.

  • comprehensive sex education
  • parent information sessions for parents and caring adults
