Find Another Resource

This Discussion Guide is designed to be used with youth for the video JSI created Place Matters: Youth Perspectives on Teen Pregnancy and Their Environment

Place Matters video features eight youth leadership team (YLT) members who were trained by teen pregnancy prevention programs to help their peers make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. YLT activities include peer outreach and education. The video highlights YLT members’ perspectives on the unique contexts where they live, learn, work, and play, and the influence these community factors have on teen pregnancy.

The purpose of the video is to educate diverse audiences about community factors that may influence teen pregnancy.

In this Discussion Guide, questions in each section correspond with the main themes addressed by YLT members in the video, including:
• What their community and family mean to them,
• Challenges they face,
• Recommendations as to how their communities can better support them, and
• Their hopes and dreams.
