Abstinence Education Program

The Carrollton Housing Authority’s Abstinence Education Program (AEP) is an abstinence until marriage education program specifically designed for adolescents and teenagers between the grades 6th through 12th.

The primary purpose of AEP is to provide holistic abstinence education to adolescents and teens in a safe, teen friendly, nonjudgmental environment. In addition to abstinence education, the program also provides character education, refusal skills training, youth development, and education on setting goals and planning for the future.

The AEP participants can look forward to a caring and knowledgeable staff, informative topic and discussion, tutoring and homework help, arts & crafts activities, recreational outings, after school snack (lunch on some Saturdays), community involvement, and bi-monthly field trips to museums, festivals, parades, collegiate and professional sporting events, theatrical performances and much more.

This project was supported by Grant Number 93.235 from the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families and the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the Housing Authority of the City of Carrollton and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families or the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services.
