Project Alpha is a collaborative effort between the March of Dimes Foundation and the Beta Nu Lambda Foundation, Inc. This program was developed to increase the knowledge of the today’s teens of the consequences of teenage pregnancy. This program seeks to assist students in developing an understanding of their role in preventing untimely pregnancies through responsible attitudes and behaviors.
The goals of Project Alpha are to:
- Reduce the rate of adolescent sex and pregnancy
Stress the concept of abstinence as a personal choice while promoting the use of contraceptives to those that choose to be sexually active
Increase the knowledge of anatomy and physiology of the human body and the awareness of sexually transmitted diseases
Clarify and emphasize the roles and responsibilities of fatherhood
Reduce the rate of sexual abuse and violence among African-American teens
Project Alpha takes place in the spring of each year. For more information, firstname.lastname@example.org
