CAPSLO's Health & Prevention Youth Programs Presents the 12th Annual Teen Monologues

12th Annual Teen MonologuesSAN LUIS OBISPO: In June, Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County’s “Teen Monologues” teen theater project has been asked to perform the plenary session at the annual Office of Adolescent Health conference in Washington DC for an audience of more than 1,000 attendees representing more than 300 federal teen pregnancy prevention grantees. 

In recognition of Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Month in May, the San Luis Obispo community will have an opportunity to see Teen Monologues in two performances at the San Luis Obispo Little Theater on April 24 at 6:30 and 8:30 PM, with a dessert reception and music starting at 6:00 and 8:00 respectively.  Shows are followed by a “talk-back” with writers, cast members, and program manager, Francine Levin. Proceeds will benefit CAPSLO’s Health & Prevention Youth Programs.   Tickets are $5 for teens and $10 for adults.

 Based on powerful true stories from local teens about sexual health issues, “Teen Monologues” is written and performed by youth. The performance reflects the state of teen pregnancy in our community and beyond, moving past facts and statistics into the emotional undercurrent that thousands of teens are swept into every day. For teens, the monologues communicate that they are not alone, while challenging them to consider the consequences of their decisions and the complexity of relationships. For adults, the performance conveys the importance of talking early and talking often about sexuality issues with their children.

 In its twelfth year, the script includes a series of monologues that draw on over a decade of teen stories. The script continually evolves to incorporate new themes and reflect topics youth say need greater attention, such as teen-parent communication, teen pregnancy, dating violence and sexual assault, drug and alcohol abuse, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, and communication between sexual partners. Focus groups conducted among youth last year revealed a need for a monologue that focused on the particular challenges of LGBT youth.  A new monologue will be debuted this year to approximately 600 students and parents in school and community performances. The Office of Adolescent Health funds Teen Monologues (Grant #TP IAH 000067-01-00).

CAPSLO Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Receives Honor from National Head Start Association

In late June 2013, the National Head Start Association (NHSA) called Bill Castellanos, CYFS Director, to congratulate the Migrant and Seasonal Head Start program on its selection as a Quality Initiative Program of Excellence. This designation is earned only by those Head Start and Early Head Start programs that consistently demonstrate excellence in program management and service performance, and that continually deliver robust outcomes for at-risk children birth to five years of age, pregnant women, and families, and their communities at large.

In January, NHSA sent the following letter regarding this award to Senator Barbara Boxer.

NHSA Program of Excellence Award

CAPSLO is honored by this distinction and feels very privileged to do the work that we do for farm worker families and their children across eight counties.
