This organization educates youth in targeted areas in the city of Dallas about sexual health and the unintended consequences of unprotected sex. Dallas, TX has some of the highest birth rates by teen age mothers. Sadly, 67% of teenage mothers in Dallas live below the poverty line and their children are twice as likely to end up in prison. NTARUPT is making a difference thru comprehensive sex education.
Ntarupt's values are:
It takes a village. We collaborate to increase capacity — growing the number of trained health educators and training locations — for the change our community needs.
We honor data. We use evidence-based approaches to achieve positive outcomes.
Driven by positive opportunities ahead for countless young people, NTARUPT relentlessly pursues opportunities to educate, overcoming obstacles with vigor.
We aren’t dogmatic. There isn’t just one way to do things. We use a flexible approach to accomplish the brighter goal of increased opportunity for youth.
Real talk about real issues. Given our sexualized culture, only open discussion can equip youth to pursue healthier outcomes.
The goals we pursue are achievable with aligned resources. The cycle of poverty exacerbated by teen pregnancy CAN be interrupted by our combined efforts.
