History of WeldWAITS

Timeline of Program

The Weld County Abstinence Education Program began in 1998 as one of the first abstinence programs housed in a local health department to target teen pregnancy. By 2005 it had evolved into “WeldWAITS”, a sexual risk avoidance program that focused on providing a holistic approach to delaying sexual debut, reducing teen pregnancy and STIs, and teaching healthy relationship skills.
