RealCare Baby® and our other experiential learning tools have been used in community education settings for over two decades to help young people make healthy choices about teen pregnancy, relationships, life skills and more. That means we’ve had over 20 years of conversations with maternal and child health educators about program ideas, tips and best practices!
These seasoned users are doing some exciting things to engage program participants, like inviting police officers and emergency technicians to present information in person about the dangers of leaving infants unattended in hot cars, and having program participants visit big-box stores to calculate the price of diapers, formula and other infant necessities so they better understand the cost of having a baby.
Check out the infographic below for 10 ways to engage young people in teen pregnancy prevention and parenting education programs.
