The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) is a pregnancy prevention program funded by the Administration on Children, Youth, and Families’ (ACYF) Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. The goal of the DC Personal Responsibility Education Program (DC-PREP) is to expand the use of evidence-based programs designed to educate adolescents on both abstinence and contraception to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS, and at least three adulthood preparation subjects within the District of Columbia. The HYDT offers five competitive DC-PREP sub-grants to organizations to implement an approved evidence-based program for District youth that aligns with the overall goals of the program. In addition, the HYDT provides DC-PREP related professional development trainings and technical assistance to schools and community based organizations on evidence-based implementation and programming.
