“Amplify” website offers help for parents and teens

Amplify Youth Development is a nonprofit, healthy lifestyle education program of DuPage County, Illinois. Our interactive presentations encourage students in grades 6-12 to consider the benefits of abstaining from sexual activity before marriage, while also discussing goals and healthy relationships.

Our mission is to prevent unplanned pregnancies in DuPage County through education, leadership, parent support, and community collaboration.

Amplify Youth Development offers five-lesson programs for schools and after-school orgazinations. Our middle school presentations complement Abstinence and Marriage Partnership’s Game Plan curriculum. High school students receive a program focused on healthy relationships based on the book How to Avoid Falling for a Jerk by Dr. John Van Epp. Other programs include summer internships for high school students, an after-school program for Spanish-speaking students, training workshops for parents, and an interactive parenting blog.
