About In Control
In Control, “Roc City’s Most Official Teen Program,” is a youth development program with a purpose. We bring together youth development, sexual health education and community outreach in connection with reproductive health care services in a strategic effort to reduce teen pregnancy rates in the City of Rochester.
We understand that solid decision making requires accurate information, as well as self-esteem and self-assurance. We meet teens where they’re at whether in school, on the streets or in their homes and empower them to take control of their futures. We offer educational, vocational and recreational programs that are designed to keep teens engaged while supplying them with the tools they need to become successful adults. We have life skills training that includes college and job preparation as well as character development. Teens also receive comprehensive, medically accurate, age-appropriate, evidence-based and inclusive sexual health education. We empower teens with the skills to make informed decisions regarding their sexual health. We strive to provide a supportive environment for them to talk openly and honestly about sex and relationships.
