Personal Responsibility Education Program announced

| June 3, 2015

COSHOCTON – Do you have or are you a teen or young adult ages 14-19 who is looking for some open conversations about budgeting, career building, job searches, pregnancy prevention or decreasing their risk of STDs and HIV? Then come to PREP Camp. Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Camp will be held Monday through Thursday, June 15-25, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Job and Family Services, 725 Pine St., but is sponsored and facilitated by Thompkins Treatment, Inc.

This evidence-based curriculum is geared toward youth and young adults, and is being offered at no charge to all who are interested in attending. It provides youth an informative, dynamic and interactive approach to prevent unplanned pregnancy, STDs/HIV, as well as topics to promote healthy relationships. It will include open discussion about contraception, abstinence and risk factors related to unplanned pregnancy, STDs and the future. Attendees of this camp will learn the latest facts and information regarding these topics as well as bring an opportunity for answers to questions youth did not feel comfortable asking or even realize the need to know and think about regarding the future and planning for careers and how their actions now affect some of these outcomes.

Those who complete the program, which includes a pre and post test will be entered in drawings for door prizes. This camp is for men and women ages 14 to 20 years old and is free to the community. Please RSVP to Thompkins Treatment by calling 740-622-4470 to allow the leaders of this camp to prepare and plan accordingly.
