Our Strategy (Theory of Change)

CPR uses a whole-person approach in equipping youth to develop healthy relationships. Healthy relationships have long-term, positive impacts on youth and communities. CPR teaches adults how to instruct youth about healthy and unhealthy behaviors rather than ‘good’ or ‘bad’ behaviors, to address the widest audience possible. Sexual behavior affects youth in every area of their life – emotionally, physically, mentally and socially. Addressing only the physical consequences of sexual behavior – STIs, teen pregnancy – does not effectively serve youth. Youth must understand the whole-person impact of sexual behavior.

CPR believes that engaging parents and other caring adults in this process is essential to driving long-term change. CPR also believes that youth impacted by CPR’s programs will pass along their knowledge to other youth and eventually to their own families and children.
