On Wednesday, June 7th, 2012, the Not Right Now Spartanburg (SC) Community Action Group (CAG) had its monthly meeting. During our meeting, new and veteran group members introduced themselves, the overview of the CAG purpose was presented, business items were discussed, the community road map (the Behavior Determinant Intervention (BDI) Logic Model) was showcased, and action items were reviewed.
The SC Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy will have its Summer Institute in North Charleston, SC from June 13th until June 15th. As part of the contingent that will attend the conference from Spartanburg (SC), I will be promoting the campaign during the entire conference via social media (Facebook and Twitter) and blogging (in particular, the opening speaker).
Also at this meeting, we looked at the determinants that the CAG came up with in the BDI Logic Model and decided to have some group members spearhead each determinant. I will be spearheading determinant #3: increase perception of male responsibility for teen pregnancy prevention. Since we need more adult males to be part of the lives of young males, this was a natural determinant to get involved with. Hopefully, we will be able to establish a coalition of adult males.
