(This amendment provides $35,000 GF and $26,000 NGF the second year for teen pregnancy prevention funding in Roanoke City. The Department of Health noted recently that Roanoke City has the second highest rate of teenage pregnancy at 71.1 per 1,000 girls. Only Petersburg has a higher rate. Funding would add a half-time community educator to conduct multi-session sexuality and life skills programs for teens and pre-teens to prevent sexual risk-taking, which often results in pregnancy, parenthood, and sexually transmitted infections.)
