The "it’s yoUR choice" Teen Pregnancy Prevention Grant is beginning the eighth year of implementation during the 2017-18 school year, annually serving over 3,000 students in higher risk Manatee County zip codes. Thus far, over 25,000 students have been served by this program. "it’s yoUR choice" provides a continuum of services designed to prevent teen pregnancy and reduce repeat teen births for students attending five traditional middle schools, four traditional high schools, two alternative schools, and the TAPP (Teenage Parenting Program) program. All schools were selected as they meet the Request for Proposal’s targeted ZIP code areas, as put forth by the Manatee County Government/Children’s Services, who fund the program.
