YSN Professor Helps Students Produce Teen Pregnancy Prevention Public Service Announcements

December 1, 2008

In her role as chair of New Haven Mayor John DeStefano's "Teen Pregnancy Prevention Council," YSN Associate Professor Alison Moriarty Daley worked with a group of students as they prepared video public service announcements for city-wide distribution.

New Haven public school students developed and produced all aspects of the public service announcements, including writing, storyboards, directing, filming, and editing of these clips. "I still get goose bumps every time I see these video PSAs," commented Moriarty Daley. ""They are really well done and send a simple but important message - 'It's My Responsibility, It's Your Responsibility.' "

In addition to the videos premiere before the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Council, the clips have been shown to the high school principals, are posted on YouTube (see below), and will be shown at other upcoming public and school events.
