Mission Statement

Suffolk County’s Teen Pregnancy Advisory Board was established by the Teen Pregnancy Task Force to provide ongoing support and assistance to Suffolk County’s continuing effort to decrease the rate of teen pregnancy. The Teen Pregnancy Advisory Board’s mission is: 

  • To promote educational outreach on teen pregnancy and related issues;
  • To advocate for increased access to family planning services for sexually active youth;
  • To recommend best practices to help young people, particularly those in marginalized groups, to avoid risky behaviors, including those that put them at risk of pregnancy; and
  • To provide support for pregnant and parenting teens.
