In an effort to reduce the number of teenage pregnancies in Charleston County, CCTPPC provides a leadership and advocacy infrastructure. Integrity and caring are hallmarks of this effort, showing respect for diverse convictions and opinions. CCTPPC, while embracing best practices, will be good stewards of its financial, personal, theological, and political resources.
CCTPPC's Mission Statement
CCTPPC’s mission is to reduce the number of teenage pregnancies each year through public education and advocacy, in order to improve the quality of life in the Charleston community. To achieve this mission, CCTPPC's focus is to increase public awareness of the impact of teenage pregnancy on the adolescent, the family, and the community; to advocate public policy supporting the reduction of teenage pregnancies through making available medically accurate sexuality and prevention education; and to promote safe and equal access to pregnancy prevention services.
To achieve our mission, we focus on providing information to the community on teen pregnancy data, community resources, contraceptive access, and effective teen pregnancy prevention programs and comprehensive health and sexuality education policy.
Currently, CCTPPC is heavily involved in advocating for medically accurate sexuality and prevention education, and compliance with the South Carolina Comprehensive Health Education Act. We also sponsor trainings for youth-serving professionals, and for parents and teens at local churches.
The CCTPPC meets at 8:00 a.m. on the
second Tuesday of each month.
