Community Oriented Opportunities for Learning (COOL) Assertive Responsive Teen Project.

The COOL Assertive Responsive Teen Project is geared toward combating the teenage pregnancy and STD/HIV crisis in Mississippi among youth between the ages of 12-19 through the use of an abstinence-only approach. The curriculum used, “Sex Can Wait,” is a 24-hour intervention that is divided into three sections – “Knowing Myself,” “Relating to Others,” and “Planning the Future.” Each section covers a different area of emphasis centered on healthy youth development. Students who complete the intervention will have a better sense of their self-worth and skills to connect the importance of their current choices to long-term goals. The intervention will occur in various settings including schools, youth programs and churches during school and non-school hours.
