Big Decisions Evaluation Project

The OAH Tier 2B Big Decisions Study is a 5-year grant awarded by the Office of Adolescent Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (Tier 2B Grant No. TP2AH000044-01-00) in several Texas border/rural school districts, including the Eagle Pass Independent School District and the San Felipe del Rio Consolidated Independent School District.

Parent Education

Parents can be a great resource for their children when it comes to issues such as sexuality, but many parents find it challenging to talk to their kids about this important topic.


HFTX and three of San Antonio’s Alamo Community Colleges have teamed up for the BAE-B-SAFE program to prevent unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease to college-aged teens on and off campus.

Youth Education

Teens continue to say that parents (38%) most influence their decisions about sex. By comparison, just 22% say friends most influence their decisions.
