The Prevent Premature Fatherhood (PPF) 
program provides group facilitation to youth, ages 12-19. Discussion topics focus on not becoming a parent before being ready.

Thanks to funding from the Cuyahoga County Fatherhood Initiative, over 10,000 youths throughout Cuyahoga County have participated in this program since 2006.


The PPF program offers a five-part series which covers the following topic areas:

  • Healthy Relationships
  • Exploring the Role of Gender
  • Consent
  • Sexual Health: The Basics
  • Sexual Health: Life Planning


PPF programming is FREE and can be scheduled for youth at your school, church, or organization. All youth will be provided education, resources and food. Contact 216.201.2001 ext. 1327 to schedule today!



Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI/STD) and Pregnancy Prevention

Providing youth with information regarding STI transmission and prevention is a cornerstone of the program.  Group discussions explore the male role in reproductive health and the responsibility of becoming a father. Resources are provided that include local reproductive health services.

Being free of symptoms does not mean that you are healthy. Many STIs do not have any symptoms.
