G2G is a teenage pregnancy prevention program designed specifically for teen girls ages 14-18 years.
The program is delivered over text messaging, and teens across the country are being included in a research study to see if the program helps teens make healthier choices.
Maybe your daughter, niece, or even your child’s best friend has mentioned G2G to you. Whatever the case, welcome to our project website!

We have worked closely with our ethical review board to make sure that we have designed a program that best protects the safety of the teens in our program. This includes allowing them to make their own decision about whether to take part in the research and not tell her parents if she does not want to.
We've tailored this program to only focus on health issues facing young women. As you’re probably aware, young men and young women have many different concerns and behaviors regarding their health, so it makes sense to tailor programs for them separately.
