Abstract

This article describes a replication of the School/Community Sexual Risk Reduction Model for adolescent pregnancy prevention in several Kansas communities. The model was implemented initially in two communities in South Carolina. First, we describe the School/Community Model - its history, major program components, evaluation results, and the conceptual framework for the Kansas replication. Second, we describe the School/Community Sexual Risk Reduction Replication Initiative, including the collaborators, early implementation, strategies for grantmaking, contexts and sites, technical assistance and evaluation, and reinvention of the model. We conclude with a discussion of the challenges and opportunities of replicating broad-scale community initiatives for preventing adolescent pregnancy.
