ACAP to Receive Youth 360 Innovation Award from Healthy Teen Network

2017 City Proclamation Resized

With the Youth 360° Innovation Award, Healthy Teen Network (HTN) recognizes emerging innovations and achievements in adolescent sexual and reproductive health promotion that integrate the social determinants of health. Innovation is a critical component of a comprehensive strategy to respond to the dynamic lives of adolescents and young adults.

ACAP has been selected because of its commitment to using a holistic, Youth 360⁰ approach to working collaboratively for and with youth to achieve lifetime success. ACAP has embraced the idea that Youth 360° is more than just a messaging tool; it is a way to approach systems-based change to respond to the dynamic lives of young people. Healthy Teen Network and its members will celebrate the efforts of ACAP by presenting this award on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, during an awards luncheon at its annual conference in Baltimore, MD.

Volunteer With ACAP to Develop and Launch a Latino Messaging Campaign

In an effort to lower teen pregnancy rates among Latinas in Alexandria, ACAP is working with Spitfire Strategies to launch an outreach campaign to encourage young Latinas to access ACAP and other community resources and learn more about prevention options. The first phase of this project includes conducting interviews with key stakeholders and hosting focus groups to gather information about what Latinas and their families value, what their thoughts are about sex, pregnancy and contraceptives, where they get information, how they access resources and what barriers they encounter. Volunteers (bilingual preferred) are needed to help take notes and document the interviews and focus groups, which will take places at various times during the months of October and November. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Latino community in Alexandria and to support ACAP's initiatives. Please contact Lisette.Torres@alexandriava.gov to discuss this volunteer opportunity.
