As you may be aware Anystate has over _____________ teenage pregnancies each year. We rank _____________ in the nation.
Since the 1980’s many states have formed independent, non profit statewide organizations that have initiated programs and services to promote the prevention of teen pregnancy. These organizations in such states as North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Minnesota, Massachusetts and New Mexico, to name a few, have become vital advocates for realistic relevant, science-based prevention programs.
In the past six months, a small steering committee has been meeting to create a state organization here in __________________. We have secured non-profit status, incorporated in our state and have begun developing a website.
We are now in the process of nominating a first Board of Directors to lead this new initiative. If you would consider being nominated, some information that may be helpful follows:
I am very excited about the opportunities ahead for the Anystate Organization on Teen Pregnancy Prevention and know that your contributions would be invaluable.
