- Most youth in these programs reported being White or Black or African American, and most were ages 15 to 18.
- About three-quarters of youth reported being sexually active before entering the program.
- After PREP, more than one-third of the youth in these programs reported they were less likely to have sex in the next six months, and a large majority reported they were more likely to use condoms and birth control if they have sex.
