Funding Tips *
We have experts on writing and obtaining federal grants. We provide technical assistance to several organizations applying for CBAE grants and other abstinence grants. Also, our development team is consistently gathering innovative fundraising and donor development techniques and ideas for distribution. Even with grants, groups cannot afford to lose or neglect their donor base.

We’ve assembled a library of resources for the use of our affiliates. This research is available on the Web and also at the Clearinghouse. If you don’t find what you need on our website, give us a call – we probably have it!

Abstinence Education Certification
The certification is a process that we began several years ago. The basic reasons for providing it are two fold. First, when No Child Left Behind was passed, it included a provision that teachers must be certified in the subject they are teaching. While, the law is not yet applied to abstinence education, this program is the foundation that will keep us ahead of the curve. Second, the abstinence education community was lacking the ability to prove that the educators were credible and qualified to teach abstinence education. By passing the certification test, a certified abstinence educator can say, “a group of 40 professionals in fields such as child psychology and developmental education advised on or wrote a test that I passed, which demonstrates that I have the baseline knowledge on STDs, abstinence and relationships needed to teach abstinence education.” Click HERE for form to become certified.
