Teen Leaders from Northeast Florida are joining thousands of other youth from around the country to get out the word: Sex has consequences.

May 1 is the National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, an annual day that kicks off the start of Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month. The purpose of the National Day is to focus the attention of teens on the importance of avoiding too-early pregnancy and parenthood through the interactive online National Day quiz. The Quiz is available all month long at StayTeen.org.

Participants in the 4Me Teen Health Project Teen Leadership Councils at nine different locations throughout the region will be wearing their National Day pins and promoting the National Day Quiz among their friends. In addition, each Council is developing a mini-project to implement in their community to educate their peers, friends and families on teen pregnancy during the month.

The National Day is organized by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen & Unplanned Pregnancy.
