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.

Eligibility

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.
