This report presents the results from the first follow-up survey from the federally funded evaluation of the Demoiselle-2-Femme (D2F) signature afterschool program. The survey was completed by the first cohort of female high school students participating in the evaluation. The purpose of the evaluation is to estimate the effects of program participation on a number of key behavioral outcomes including sexual activity, unprotected sex, and teenage pregnancy. After providing some background information about teenage pregnancy, the federal funding source, and afterschool pregnancy prevention programs, we describe D2F’s signature afterschool program, explain the study design and share the first follow-up survey results. We conclude with a discussion of the findings and some comments about next steps.
