Operating under the Rockingham County Division of Public Health, the Rockingham County Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Coalition (RCAPPC) strives to reduce the rate of adolescent pregnancies in Rockingham County. Rockingham County is home to more than 93,600 people with approximately 5,800 between the ages of 15 and 19 years old. In 
2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 there were 176, 168, 108 143, and 118 adolescent pregnancies (15-19 year olds), respectively. It is our goal to watch this trend continue to decline in the years to come and to offer our youth activities that will allow them to make smart decisions and avoid becoming a teen parent.  

Current strategies to prevent adolescent pregnancy are implemented through a variety of programs including conducting the annual ‘Prom Promise’ pledge signing, ‘Teen Girl Expo,’ and sponsoring the teen driven Teen Health Now Leadership Council. 

Funding for the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Coalition is provided by:
Rockingham County Government
Western Rockingham County Junior Service League
Reidsville Junior Service League
