Key Findings
  • During the 2019-2020 reporting period, PREP funded 92 grantees and 386 program providers. Providers operated 496 programs that served 97,966 youth during the period.
  • The most commonly implemented program models were Making Proud Choices!, Teen Outreach Program, Be Proud! Be Responsible!, and Reducing the Risk.
  • PREP grantees must address at least three of six adulthood preparation subjects (APSs). Programs most commonly addressed healthy relationships, healthy life skills, and adolescent development.
  • Participants primarily attended PREP programming in schools during the 2019-2020 reporting period.
  • More than three-quarters of youth participants completed at least 75 percent of the intended programming hours.
  • PREP programs served diverse populations of youth.
  • At program exit, most youth reported positive perceptions of the PREP programs.

The goal of the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) is to educate adolescents on abstinence and contraception to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS. PREP is administered by the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) within the Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

All PREP grantees are required to submit performance measures data to FYSB. This fact sheet summarizes some findings based on performance measures for the 2019-2020 reporting period.
