What is PREP Manchester?

WHY we do what we do?

The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) is a federally funded, comprehensive sexual health education program provided through Amoskeag Health for teen and young adults to reduce pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections and to increase healthy relationships and positive adolescent development. PREP provides a no-cost, discussion-based course open to people of all genders, aged 14-19 years, or up to 21 years old if pregnant and/or parenting. 

We believe that teens and young adults deserve access to medically accurate, reliable and informative comprehensive sexual health education. We value, support, and respect everyone’s rights and abilities to make informed choices about their health and safety. PREP provides an inclusive, learner-focused environment for all students.

  • Topics include; Communication skills, pregnancy prevention, sexually transmitted infections, condom use, healthy relationships, gender identity, sexuality, abstinence and more!
  • Provides medically accurate and age-appropriate information.
  • Emphasizes social and emotional learning skills (SEL) as a key component of healthy relationships and responsible decision making.
  • Conversation based; allowing teens and young adults to be experts on their own lives!
  • For more information on the Get Real curriculum itself, please visit their website.
