Adolescent Health and Youth Development

Fulton County's Adolescent Health and Youth Development (AHYD) Program strives to reduce the number of teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections among youth living in Fulton County.

The AHYD uses the following strategies:

Community Health Education

  • Promotes and coordinates the implementation of evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention using trained facilitators certified by the Georgia Department of Public Health to implement Making Proud Choices, Making a Difference, and Family Life and Sexual Health (FLASH) curricula.
  • Provides in-person and/or virtual learning health education classes and workshops on various adolescent health and youth development issues using knowledgeable facilitators.

Links youth to clinical health services available through the Board of Health’s teen clinic now located at the Adamsville Regional Health Center.


Professional Development

Identifies and links organizations to “Train the Trainer” opportunities to expand the capacity of the public health workforce to provide evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention curricula in a variety of settings
