  3. 3. Situation Statement: 2-3 sentences describing the issue or problem to be addressed Risky sexual behavior has been a tremendous problem for our youth from increased teen pregnancy to new cases of sexually transmitted diseases; all have been on the rise and are much more prevalent in America then other countries. Our goal is to educate youth about sexual literacy in hopes of decreasing youth engaging in risky sexual behavior. According to the Center for Diseases Control, (2007) “approximately 48% of high school student’s reported having sexual intercourse and 15% of high school students have had four or more partners during their life.” As a society, we must establish a productive and cohesive program to raise awareness and decrease youth’s risky sexual behavior. ASSUMPTIONS: What assumptions are you making in your model? What would have to be true for your model to work? 1) That youth from all ethnic backgrounds will participate and be open to applying the skills of our program. 2) Community centers, Department Of Children and Families, and existing programs will network with us and tell us what works for their programs and the things their programs are insufficient on and how we could implement effective policies into our program. Established Organizations have to be receptive to their shortcomings and willing to discuss ways of making progress for effective programs and our youth. 3) We are assuming that parents want to build constructive child relationships and that they will make time to learn the skills to implement a positive parent-child relationship. Parents will have to be eager to participate and accessible for the workshops and willing to apply the skills learned. BARRIERS/CHALLENGES: What barriers or challenges will you have to overcome? What would make it difficult to achieve your outcomes? 1) Seeking parental Invovelment is a barrier that our program may face with some parents being the primary breadwinner or single parents. If parents are single parents or the primary breadwinners of the household they may not be able to give their child the attention and guidance they need. 2) Building up trust to ensure participants that leaders are passionate and concerned about their well being is a barrier that our program may face. It will be difficult to develop support systems and gain the trust of strangers, for a program to be effective participants and leaders will have to gain mutual trust. 3) Becoming a reputable program is a barrier that our program will face being that it is a new program and we are establishing crediabilty. It is diffcult to obtain the respect from exsiting programs and participants considering the number of participants in their programs may choose to decline there membership in hopes of learning something pertinent .
