  • This study aims to evaluate the changes in knowledge, attitude, and beliefs about adolescent pregnancy in Gaston County among secondary stakeholders for the Gaston Youth Connected (GYC) community-wide teen pregnancy prevention project. We used both qualitative and quantitative methods, which included 24 qualitative interviews and responses to closed-ended questions about teen pregnancy and GYC approaches. Findings indicate that community presentations were effective in informing community leaders, building community buy-in, and empowering advocates to prevent adolescent pregnancy in Gaston County.
