Geauga TPP Philosophy Statement

TPP was founded on the premise that adolescents are able to make healthy decisions regarding their sexuality.  TPP emphasizes abstinence as the healthiest and safest choice, and as the only 100% effective method of preventing STD transmission and unwanted pregnancy.

However, we know historically that many youth do not always choose the safest and best road in various situations.  These youth do not deserve a death sentence through HIV infection, a sexually transmitted disease, or the consequences of an unwanted pregnancy.

As such, TPP's primary voice is that of promoting abstinence, though contraception is not treated as taboo.  STD and contraceptive units are available to schools or organizations who add them in an age appropriate section of their program.

School district personnel, classroom teachers, parents, youth and community leaders take a lead role in determining student needs and program content in many areas.  Questions from teachers, parents and students are always answered in an honest and open manner.
