Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA)

 

The Crisis

  • 1 in 2 sexually active young people will contract an STD by age 25
  • 1 million teens become pregnant each year
  • Almost half of all high school students are sexually active
  • 19.7 million new STD cases are reported each year,
  • 50% of these are teens
  • 78% of sexually active teens NEVER get tested for HIV

The Success

As a result of the SRA program:

  • 87% felt they could resist the pressure to have sex
  • 71% signed commitments to choose abstinence until marriage

“I didn’t realize the dangers of having sex before marriage. Now I have a better understanding of the consequences and I plan to wait until marriage to become sexually active.”
– Student Comment, 7th Grade

“I’ve already had sex, but only once. I’ve decided to officially wait until I’m married to do it again. This program definitely made me think.”
– Student Comment, High School
