Train Professionals: A broad range of trainings are offered to meet the needs of teen pregnancy prevention and other youth-serving professionals. In addition to high-quality trainings, recent offerings have expanded to include the delivery of customized on-site trainings and the creation of an Online Learning Center.  In addition, each year nearly 400 youth-serving professionals from South Carolina and across the country attend our Summer Institute, hailed as one of the best teen pregnancy prevention conference in the country.

Award Mini-Grants: Through public and private funds, we provide mini-grants to local teen pregnancy prevention organizations to implement research proven prevention programs. Mini-grant funding provides an opportunity for local programs to be innovative in their implementation of research proven programs.

Educate the Community: Intensive public awareness efforts are key to successful teen pregnancy prevention. In addition to media opportunities throughout the year resulting in millions of media impressions in South Carolina and beyond, dedicated activities include Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month (May), Let's Talk Month (October), multi-media campaigns, and Not Right Now initiatives in both Horry and Spartanburg.

Inform Policymakers: Regular communication with members of the South Carolina House and Senate keep them abreast of teen pregnancy and related issues. During the legislative session, staff can be found at the State House serving as advocates for our state’s most valuable resource – young people.

Distribute Publications and Resources: We use the latest data and research to drive our work, encourage local programs to use science-based approaches and support them through personalized evaluation plans. Our commitment to the most up-to-date resources and materials results in the creation and distribution of fact sheets highlighting cutting-edge research to bound publications and research briefs. Our continuously updated resource library holds resources, curricula, and publications available for loan or purchase.

Engage Faith Communities: Through publications, trainings, and technical assistance opportunities, we encourage the faith community to address the topics of teen sex, pregnancy, and parenthood within the context of their own faith.

Provide Technical Assistance: Programs in all of South Carolina’s 46 counties benefit from our on-site, personalized technical assistance. Staff in four regions of the state respond to a variety of phone, email and personal inquiries from prevention programs as needed. Technical assistance efforts also reach previously unreached populations of service providers including teen clinic staff, foster care case workers, higher education professionals and community service organizations.

Assist Parents: We work with media outlets and collaborate with national partners to help parents understand the critical role they play in shaping their children’s decisions about sex. Trainings, technical assistance efforts, and web-based materials and publications offer “tips for parents,” and address creative ways community-based organizations can get parents involved in their prevention efforts.

Evaluating our work/ Accountability: We embed evaluation into our projects to ensure that we’re meeting the needs of the target population and being good stewards of funds to prevent teen pregnancy. Through quantitative and qualitative evaluation, we use data to inform and improve our programmatic efforts.

Invest in Solutions to Help High Priority Populations: Using emerging research and data, we identify vulnerable populations who could benefit from increased focus. Resources are directed at these populations to prevent teen pregnancy. For the past four years, older teens (18-19 year olds) have received greater attention and the SC Campaign is recognized as a leader in addressing teen pregnancy among this age group.

Work with Schools: Through multiple projects, over 16 counties are working with the SC Campaign to implement effective teen pregnancy prevention programs.

Support Research: Through partnerships with outside institutions and gathering collective knowledge internally, the SC Campaign contributes to the field of teen pregnancy prevention by conducting original research and sharing data with external researchers.
