The Martha O'Bryan Center is a Christian family resource center that supports and empowers individuals and families in need living in the east Nashville and surrounding community to attain greater levels of well being and self-reliance. The grant is to expand the Girls On Track program by providing a comprehensive pregnancy prevention component that utilizes a multifaceted approach to facilitating positive behavior change among youth ages 8-18 who are the most likely to participate in high-risk behaviors, including premature sexual activity, alcohol, and drug use. 80% of 60 youth participants will abstain from participation in behaviors that place them at higher risk of pregnancy and infection of HIV and STIs from the time of program enrollment through 60 days after the completion of the program based on information culled from a Youth Risk Behavior Survey.
