Teen Pregnancy Prevention

Tribal Teen Pregnancy Prevention

Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death for Native Americans ages 1-44.

Since 2000, the CRIHB Injury Prevention program has successfully obtained numerous grants to fund activities such as providing Child Passenger Safety (CPS) certification courses, teen DUI campaigns, bike helmet campaigns, IHS Injury Prevention trainings, car seat distribution programs, and a mini-grant program.

We will continually seek funding that will increase injury prevention and awareness efforts on tribal lands.

Trainings and technical assistance are available through CRIHB.

Curriculum Components

The foundation of Tribal PREP is a 12 session intervention entitled AIAN Becoming a Responsible Teen; which is a culturally specific adaptation of an evidence based program.

Each of the 12 sessions includes a key American Indian value to serve as the focal point for the session. Also, the session is closed with a traditional AIAN talking circle to provide clarification and reflection.

The program begins with 3 sessions on Adult Preparation Subjects (APS):

  • Healthy relationships
  • Parent-child communication
  • Healthy life skills, such as goal-setting and decision making


The APS sessions are followed by 8 sessions of educational instruction which include youth driven and participation focused activities to increase learning while promoting positive connections between youth participants.
