North Carolina: Teen Health Earns Challenge Grant

May 18, 2005

The nonprofit Teen Health Inc. received a $15,000 challenge grant from the Regional HIV/AIDS Consortium to implement its Focus on Minorities prevention programs for adolescents in Iredell County. The grant is funded through the consortium's partnership with the National AIDS Fund and by the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The grant will help fund Teen Health's Responsible Attitudes and Latino Outreach programs, in which eight groups of teens meet at least once a week for classes and activities. Since the organization began in 1996, the teen pregnancy rate among 15- to 19-year-old girls in the county has dropped by 42.1 percent, the agency said. For information about Teen Health programs, telephone 704-872-1023.
