Description

The Community Health and Well Being division of Le Bonheur Children's Hospital offers Be Proud! Be Responsible! Memphis!: a six (6) module interactive program designed to educate adolescents about safe sex practices and attitudes by guiding youth to develop a sense of pride, self-confidence and self-respect through sexual disease education, safe sex practices; such as proper condom usage, and life skills building activities. It empowers youth to build and maintain healthy relationships throughout their entire lives. While the program will focus on teenage boys, it has proven effective in reducing teen pregnancy and increasing education for both genders and for all races and ethnicities in youth ages 13 to 18.
