The Lists of Evidence-Based Programs: Multiple federal agencies have put together registries that list evidence-based programs. Registries include programs that impact outcomes that reduce teen pregnancy, as well as programs that impact risky behaviors and situations that place students at risk for teen pregnancy. Many lists are categorized, similar to a consumer guide, so communities can search for programs that best fit their needs.
