Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month Sponsorships 2018
February 9, 2018
The South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy (SC Campaign) is looking for community events to sponsor during Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month—May 2018. Events must support awareness and outreach activities that align with our mission in preventing teen pregnancy. Each sponsorship award will be up to $2,000.
Applications are due on Friday, March 16, 2018 at 5 pm.
Award-winners will be notified by Monday, April 2, 2018.
We are looking for creative events that target young people, parents, and youth-serving adults in your communities. These events should engage your community by:
- empowering young people to make healthy decisions;
- providing parents or trusted adults the resources they need to be the primary educators to their children about love, sex, and relationships; and
- educating community leaders about the importance of quality, evidence-based approaches to teen pregnancy prevention.
These events are open to interpretation and in the past have included workshops, performances followed by group discussions, and talks with guest speakers and health professionals from the community. This year we are aiming to sponsor a wide variety of events across the state that will help make Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month a success.
NOTE: Organizations currently receiving sub-award funding from the SC Campaign are not eligible to receive a Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month community event sponsorship, however, they are strongly encouraged to recruit other organizations in their community to apply for funding.
Please send any community event sponsorship questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
