E-Learning for Educators, funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Ready to Teach program, seeks to establish successful, sustainable, statewide online professional development programs that address teacher quality and student achievement goals. Through its EdTech Leaders® Online program, EDC supports this initiative by establishing a cadre of online professional development instructors and course developers within each state.
Through this project, More than a Dream Teen Pregnancy Prevention for Latino Youth, EDC aims to identify youth and parent interventions that address sexual health and pregnancy prevention among Latino youth. Interventions must be developmentally appropriate as well as culturally and linguistically relevant to Latino youth and their parents.
The goal is to reduce sexual and other risk behaviors. Participants will be Latino adolescents, ages 12-14, and their parents.
