|Fairbanks Counseling & Adoption' community presentations provide pregnancy and parenting knowledge, and peer support designed to modify high-risk behaviors and enhance the ability to protect children from abuse, neglect and unsafe environments.
Presentations and workshops are conducted at schools and appropriate public facilities throughout the year. School activities can be coordinated with teacher’s curriculum and scheduled activities.
Presentations are based on fun, interactive game models to attract the youths’ attention and promote interactive involvement. Teen panelists present personal stories and share their challenges as teen parents to help prevent their fellow students from repeating their mistakes. Community professionals such as lawyers, child support enforcement or child custody case workers are often included to provide legal and technical information.
Goals and Purposes:
- To delay sexual activity and prevent teen pregnancy in adolescents through discussion of positive and negative peer pressure, responsible decision making, healthy relationships and communication.
- Broaden teens’ understanding of the important roles parents play, both mothers and fathers, in the development and shaping of children's lives.
- Provide teen parents with a working awareness of community resources and support systems.
- Strengthen parent/teen communication skills.
