A Father's Place Presents

Be Proud! Be Responsible!

Be Proud! Be Responsible! is a curriculum selected by Office of Adolescent Health as an eligible evidence-based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Intervention and chosen by the Centers for Disease Control as a "Best-Evidence Intervention". It has proven effective to significantly reduce risky sexual behavior. 

The goal of Be Proud! Be Responsible! is to help young people change behaviors that place them at risk for becoming infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The curriculum is intended to delay initiation of sex among sexually inexperienced youth, to reduce unprotected sex among sexually active youth, and to help young people make proud and responsible decisions about their sexual behaviors.

Be Proud! Be Responsible! is a six-module curriculum that provides adolescents with the knowledge, motivation and skills necessary to change their behaviors in ways that will reduce their risk of contracting HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Module II: Building Knowledge about HIV and AIDS

Module III: Understanding Vulnerability to HIV Infection
