Families Talking Together

Families Talking Together is an evidence-based program designed to help parents talk to their teenagers about the challenging topic of teen sexual behavior. Families Talking Together is categorized as an effective program by the US Department of Health and Human Services.

The program is delivered by a trained facilitator who educates parents about teenaged sexual issues and gives them tools to engage their teenagers about reproductive health.

Every family is different, therefore FTT is delivered in many ways to meet the needs and values of families. Interventions are conducted in 1:1, group settings or home visits.

If you have any questions about the program or you would like to schedule an appointment for Families Talking Together, contact our Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coordinator who’s information is below:
