New Case Study Published by Realityworks Details Milwaukee Public Schools' Highly Successful Program to Reduce Teen Pregnancy - A Model for Urban Areas

Company collaborates with the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Milwaukee Public Schools to highlight efforts to reduce adolescent pregnancies

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (April 25, 2012) – Realityworks, Inc. recently published a case study following a joint project between the United Way of Greater Milwaukee (UWGM) and Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS). The study, Teen Pregnancy Prevention in an Urban Area: The Milwaukee Project examines the joint actions of the community to make dramatic drops in adolescent pregnancies.

In 2008 the City of Milwaukee Health Department declared a goal of reducing teen pregnancies by 46 percent. The UWGM took on the task of making this goal a reality. They partnered with several organizations including MPS to implement a multi-faceted plan that spans all grade levels and reaches all students. This approach serves as a highly successful example that yielded dramatic results.

One of the first initiatives was to improve MPS’ human growth and development curriculum. The curriculum is an opportunity to teach students real-world skills that will help them make smart choices about sex. Milwaukee followed a blue print to make dramatic results happen.

The Community-Based Approach Blue Print includes:
