Call for Proposals: Better Together Hennepin & Youthprise

Published on April 2, 2015 | Written by

Youthprise and Hennepin County join forces to address teen pregnancy prevention.

Better Together Hennepin: Healthy Communities, Healthy Youth (BTH) is a teen pregnancy prevention initiative managed by Hennepin County and supported by Youthprise and a variety of community partners. BTH focuses on four key supports that research shows all young people need in order to wait until they are adults to become parents: comprehensive sexuality education, accessible reproductive health services, connections to caring adults, and healthy youth development opportunities. BTH works to address the particular factors that affect teen sexual behavior, pregnancy and childbearing; these are generally known as sexual risk and protective factors.


We are requesting proposals to Youthprise’s Better Together Hennepin restricted fund. For information on this opportunity and to apply go here. The deadline is May 8, 2015. Funding can be used to implement programs to prevent teen pregnancy as described in the guidelines in one or more of the following four areas:

  • Sex education;
  • Parent programming;
  • Access to family planning services; and
  • Healthy youth development opportunities.

We will be offering an information session from 1-2:30 pm on April 13, 2015. It will be held at Youthprise. Our address is 615 First Ave NE Suite 125, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55413.
