-The C-UPHD Family Planning clinic in Rantoul is going very well.
-Talia reported that she has completed Q3 at Franklin Middle School.
-Jennifer reported that she is in the middle of Q3 at Eater. There was an opt-out form sent home by administration this quarter. We hope to have opt-out forms and the exit survey consent forms in the registration packets at the schools this summer.
-Jennifer reported that she is in the middle of facilitating classes at The Pavilion.
-Jamie reported that she has been training TAG students since the beginning of the school year.
-PREP is funded for at least one more year, possibly two. We are asking for an exception to the grant to include some schools that don’t meet the criteria. The schools are Rantoul High School, Ludlow, Jefferson, and Edison.
-The Office of Women’s Health at IDPH has funding for the Teen Pregnancy Prevention grant. We are still waiting to hear back from Sarah O’Connor about this opportunity.
Youth CCSE Updates:
-We have a youth committee. The students are part of the Teen Awareness Group at Planned Parenthood. They held their first meeting and spent the majority of the time talking about the Teen Resource Guide. The teens will work with Jamie Hines and Maggie Nordsiek to revamp the guide as their project.
Positive Youth Development:
-U of I Extension is heading up The Real Me after school program at J. W. Eater. There are 19 students enrolled in the program. It is a media campaign. The program is scheduled to run through the first week of April. They are meeting once per week on Wednesdays after school. So far, the students have had a very positive response to this program.
Next meeting date: To be determined.
