While numerous and recent studies document the importance of involving parents in sexuality education and unplanned teen pregnancy prevention efforts, there is still a lack of resources for organizations seeking to more strategically engage and educate parents. The Adult Role Models (ARM) program is a parent-peer education program designed to provide parents with the information and skills they need to become the primary sexuality educators of their children. The ARM program has published an online Manual to help agencies to develop or strengthen their own parent-peer education programs. This webinar will guide participants through the Manual’s contents and answer questions commonly asked about the ARM program. We will also present preliminary data and findings from our randomized controlled trial, which is measuring the ARM program’s impact on parents and teen sexual health outcomes.
