AT&T Foundation's $50,000 Donation to National Health Foundation Supports Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program
Date:2/22/2010

Support for technological components of teen pregnancy program will help keep girls in school.

LOS ANGELES, Feb 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Thanks to AT&T Foundation, National Health Foundation has strengthened its "Support for Pregnant and Parenting Teens" Program, which has graduated more than 150 teen parents over the past two years.

In December 2008, the AT&T Foundation granted National Health Foundation $50,000 to help pregnant and parenting teen mothers successfully complete high school and prepare them for college or the workforce.  Over the past 12 months, National Health Foundation has designed a web-based data collection system to capture program statistics and outcomes; maintain participant contact information; and provide ongoing resources, education and information to program participants.  By capturing this data, NHF will have the ability to report on the impact of the program and will continue to provide resources and referrals to participants after graduation from the program.  Ongoing resource and referral provision will occur when NHF will conduct quarterly email updates with the teen participants and graduates.

In a time where one in four California high school students is dropping out of school and one third of female dropouts say that pregnancy or becoming a parent played a role in their decision to leave school – AT&T Foundation and National Health Foundation are taking a stand and investing resources to keep girls in school.
