Teen Decision is a nonprofit, healthy lifestyle education program serving primarily DuPage County, Illinois. Our interactive presentations encourage students in grades 6-12 to consider the physical and emotional/social benefits of abstaining from sexual activity before marriage, while also discussing goals and healthy relationships.
Our mission is threefold: Through health education, parent support, and community collaboration, we seek to
- prevent unplanned pregnancies
- reduce STD transmission among teens
- help teens make relationship choices that improve their chances for a healthier, happier future.
Teen Decision teaches teens healthy relationship skills through a sexual risk avoidance program for schools and after-school organizations. Our program can fit three to five class sessions and is focused on healthy relationships based on the book How to Avoid Falling for a Jerk by Dr. John Van Epp. Other programs include workshops for parents, and our interactive parenting blog.
