Sexual Health and Adolescent Risk Prevention (SHARP)

  • SHARP is an evidence based, single-session, 4-hour*, group-based intervention that is proven to reduce sexual risk taking behaviors among youth “at-risk” for incarceration or currently in juvenile corrections. SHARP aims to deepen STI/HIV knowledge, improve correct condom use, reduce sexual risk taking and alcohol use, and set long-term goals to utilize knowledge and skills learned during the session.
