Program Summary

Prime Time, an 18-month youth development program, was created by researchers from the University of Minnesota Prevention Research Center to prevent pregnancy among vulnerable teens. Prime Time combines one-on-one case management and peer educator groups, delivered in tandem. The program seeks to build skills, confidence, motivation, and supportive relationships that every teen needs to succeed, with a focus on responsible sexual health behaviors. Prime Time was designed for use by health clinics.


Target Population

Prime Time is designed for vulnerable adolescent girls 13 to 18 years old. The program was tested with teenage girls who were sexually active and met at least one risk criteria for teenage pregnancy (such as treatment for a sexually transmitted disease or aggressive and violent behavior), and who were seeking services from school- or community-based clinics.


Program Setting

Prime Time was designed for use by health clinics. The program was evaluated with youth recruited fromschool-based clinics and community-based clinics.
