ABOUT
TARP

tarp 3.png

It is the Mission of T.A.R.P. (Teen Advocates for Risk Prevention) to provide education and training to young people to help them become sexual health, stigma reduction, and risk prevention advocates in their schools and communities.

 

T.A.R.P.’s goal is to train at least 2 young people from each high school in Mobile and Baldwin County, as well as from the Home School Communities for a total of approximately 70 young people.

T.A.R.P. will achieve this goal by hosting virtual training meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. The first meeting of the month will focus on a specific topic and training, the second meeting will be a discussion about how to implement that topic in daily life. Topics will include Stigma, Sex Ed, HIV Prevention, Healthy Conversations, Consent, Abuse, Alcohol & Drug Use, and many other topics relevant to young people.
