The number of students who report sexual activity increases significantly with age and each grade in school. Targeting ninth- and 10th-grade students provides an opportunity to impact the lifestyle of this age group. While the intended audience is ninth- and 10th-graders, content can be adapted to other grade levels, appropriate to the needs and situations of each teacher. Correlation is provided for all the family and consumer sciences and health classes to which the concepts in this curriculum relate.
Another target audience consists of expectant mothers who participate in programs and services offered by state departments of health, regardless of their age or whether they are still in school.
