Developing Your Talk

Teen Pregnancy Prevention

Developing a Talk

1.  Introduce yourself.  Include your age, grade and school. Tell a little bit about yourself (athlete, musical talent, extra-curricular activities). Always state that you are abstinent and you are here to talk about why you made that choice.

2.  Title your talk (optional).  Be creative or humorous.

3.  Specify your topic and reason for choosing abstinence. Choose from the list or create your own. Let students know if you are a virgin, or have chosen abstinence after regretting past sexual decisions. During your talk include what you thought in 8th grade vs. what you think now.

  • Fear of STDs
  • My goals and futureRelationships, Dating and Sexual pressure
  • Music and TV
  • Teen relationships
  • Commitment and Marriage
  • What’s a real man
  • Personal negative experience or experience of friends

4.  Divide your talk into 3-4 main parts. Some students will use simple beginning-middle-end.  Others have used a past-present-future or emotional-social-physical (benefits of abstinence). See the person on the reverse of this page for guidance.

TIPS

Brainstorm first. Write down all your thoughts and feelings.

Choose your most important points, then write your talk word for word.

Use index cards or highlight main points.

Time your talk. Be sure to keep it to approximately 5 minutes.

Always be honest and straight-forward.

Consider putting your talk in the form of a story, skit or role-play.

Think about and write down any posters, props, handouts that would enhance your talk.
