The program targets youth ages 10–19. LFHS utilizes 2 effective, evidence-based curriculum, Becoming a Responsible Teen© and Making Proud Choices©. These curriculum have been proven to delay sexual activity, increase condom or contraceptive use for sexually active youth, or reduce pregnancy among youth.
