The Teen Pregnancy & Prevention Partnership promotes adolescent sexual health and teen pregnancy prevention by uniting Missouri through advocacy, collaboration, training, and public awareness. Founded in 1997, TPPP is a non-profit that works with youth-serving adults to promote comprehensive, medically accurate sexual health education.
We promote the prevention of teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections as being in the best interest of adolescents, their families and society.
We endorse evidence-based research which confirms that effective sexual health education is abstinence-first, comprehensive, age-appropriate, and medically accurate.
We believe those who parent children are and should be the primary source of their values.
We support families and communities playing a key role reducing teen pregnancy and promoting adolescent sexual health.
The vision of TPPP is to bring together all the stakeholders: teens, parents, clergy, educators, employers and policy makers, as well as health and social service providers, to ensure that our community is an environment where teens can make healthy decisions for themselves.
