Task Team

TASk is a state-of-the-art education program designed to reduce early sexual involvement, STDs, and pregnancy among students.

The program can be customized to meet your needs and usually runs between 1–5 days.

This service is provided free-of-charge to colleges, high schools and middle schools by the Education Services Department of the Pregnancy Resource Center of Santa Cruz, a non-profit community service organization. Our curriculum conforms to the California Education Code and uses medically accurate information.
