Pregnancy Prevention

GENESISTER is a pregnancy prevention program for the siblings of pregnant and parenting teens.

When compared to siblings of non-parenting teens, adolescent siblings of teen parents:

  • Are 2-6 times more likely to become pregnant.
  • Are more likely to be sexually active during early adolescence.
  • Tend to have lower educational aspirations and more problems at school – characteristics associated with increased risk of early sexual activity and pregnancy.

GENESISTER (jen-a-sister) is a partner program to the award-winning GENESIS Program for pregnant and parenting teens. GENESISTER was developed in response to the high number of GENESIS siblings who become teen parents themselves.


To participate, youth must be:

  • Female.
  • The sibling of a pregnant or parenting teen (a.k.a. a teen aunt).
  • Between the ages of 11 and 17.
  • A resident of Boulder County. For more information or to refer a teen, please call 303-678-6139.
