Reducing the Risk

Building Skills to Prevent Pregnancy, STI & HIV

Updated for 2021!


Reducing the Risk (RTR) is a 16-session curriculum designed to help high school students delay the initiation of sex or increase the use of protection against pregnancy and STD/HIV if they choose to have sex. This research-proven approach addresses skills such as risk assessment, communication, decision making, planning, refusal strategies and delay tactics.

This curriculum is available in a Print version or in a Digital version with a subscription term of 1, 2 or 3 years. All versions come bundled with Virtual Training of Educators. See the Training Calendar for available dates.
