The mission of NYSCAP is to promote healthy adolescent development and well-being, reduce the incidence of adolescent pregnancy and increase the capacity of pregnant and/or parenting youth to become productive members of society. We do this through public awareness, education, promotion of research and supporting of the efforts of individuals and organizations working on behalf of youth.
A special thank you to everyone who attended our first webinar, as well as Dr. Laina Bay-Cheng from the University at Buffalo School of Social Work for her wonderful presentation on examining the sexual well-being of youth in New York through a capability approach.
