This paper discusses the teen pregnancy problem in America. Currently, 35 out of every 100 teenagers in America becomes pregnant before the age of 20. The writer of this paper details a proposal for teen centers which are aimed at giving teens life choices and options geared towards bettering their lives. These centers would be places where teens could come to hang out after school, in the evening and on the weekends. This paper details the manner in which these centers would operate. Monthly trips such as white water rafting or hiking would take place with admission being the cost of attending a predetermined number of teen life choice classes. If a teen wants to attend a field trip he or she must attend two job readiness classes and three teen pregnancy classes. The writer also proposes that the center would provide a nurse practitioner to handle check ups and birth control needs.
From the Paper:"Teen centers aimed at giving teens life choices need to be implemented across the city. Teen centers are places where teenagers can come to hang out after school, in the evening and on the weekends( Koshar, 2001). The teen centers need to offer a combination of fun things to do and life lessons about responsibility. Offering the fun things to do is what will bring the teens into the center, and then they will be more willing to participate in the responsibility part of the program. The teen centers need to be staffed by adults, and they need to include adults who had babies as teens as well as young adults who chose to abstain as teens."
