For more than 30 years, YWCA’s Contact Plus Program has been working with middle school and high school youth in the Minneapolis Public Schools to provide comprehensive sexual health education.
YWCA integrates proven curriculum into the program, including Making Proud Choices! for middle-school youth and Girls Inc.® Preventing Adolescent Pregnancy in girls groups.
In 2017-2018, over 200 youth participated in Contact Plus. 99% reported avoiding becoming pregnant or fathering a child for a least nine months after beginning participation in the program.

“I don’t want to be with a guy who is trying to push me around. I get to decide when I am ready for all that stuff. I need to focus on school right now, not worry all the time if I might get pregnant!”
