Abstinence Education/Teen Parenting Prevention  -  The “PLAY” (Positive Life Alternatives for Youth) program is an after school program
designed for at-risk youth, ages 10-17, with focuses on abstinence education and group mentoring.   Workshops provide guidance for the
prevention of teen pregnancy, prevention of drug/tobacco use, and a deterrent from violence and crimes.  Areas of focus are geared toward
youth in economically depressed areas who are mostly at risk of continuing the cycle of poverty, drug abuse, dropping out of school, and
conceiving children out-of-wedlock.  The "PLAY" program was originally developed to confront issues of low self-esteem amongst teen girls
and boys.  During the group sessions, teens discussed issues of self-esteem or lack thereof, violence in their communities, peer pressure
(relating to relationships and sex activities) and often discussions relating to HIV/AIDS were frequent.  

As our organization grows, Envisioning New Boundaries, Inc. would like to place more emphasis on its abstinence education program by
extending the duration of workshops, providing follow-up and ongoing communication with program participants.  The ultimate goal of
Envisioning New Boundaries is to equip youth with sufficient knowledge to make  positive life choices in becoming successful young adults in
today’s society.

Various speakers are often invited to discuss the issue relating to abstinence education to prevent teen and/or out-of wedlock pregnancy and
the prevention of HIV/AIDS. The “PLAY” volunteers provide motivation and guidance, encouraging youth to make positive life choices and also
educating them on the consequences of their decisions when the wrong choices are made.

The ultimate goal of Envisioning New Boundaries is equipping youth with sufficient knowledge to make providing youth with sufficient lessons
to make positive life choices in becoming successful young adults in today’s society.
