Attention, as of July 2023:
WyPREP is conducting an ongoing capacity assessment, and is not enrolling new delivery sites at this time. Organizations interested in delivering evidence-based programs to youth can contact Megan Selheim, email@example.com, to discuss options.
The Wyoming Personal Responsibility and Education Program (WyPREP) is 100% federally funded to provide evidence-based, medically accurate teen pregnancy and STI/HIV prevention programming in schools and community-based settings. There are currently two curricula offered: Making Proud Choices (MPC) and Reducing the Risk (RTR). Making Proud Choices is an 8-module curriculum, and Reducing the Risk is comprised of 16 modules. Both curricula include information on refusal and negotiation skills and how to support a trauma-informed approach. Curricula facilitators are also able (and encouraged) to include additional information on various topics including, but not limited to: healthy relationships, adolescent development, financial literacy, parent-child communication, educational and career success, and healthy life skills.
