MissionThe Tulsa Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy equips the community with strategies to reduce teen pregnancy for the purpose of improving the health and economic well-being for all.
VisionBy 2020, the teen birth rate in Tulsa County will decrease by 30%.
At the Tulsa Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, we believe:
All teens should have access to the most effective, age-appropriate, medically accurate health and sexuality education. This education should emphasize abstinence and provide information about contraception.
Systemic change on this issue can only be achieved through community collaboration.
Young adults should be respected for their unique traits and characteristics, and empowered to take control of their own reproductive health and wellness.
Parents should be equipped to be the primary educators of their children about love, sex and relationships.
The prevention of teen pregnancy is in the best interest of adolescents, their families and their communities.
Teens should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, without the additional challenge of early pregnancy.
Males and females share responsibility in preventing teen pregnancy.
