The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy seeks to improve the lives and future prospects of children and families and, in particular, to help ensure that children are born into stable, two-parent families who are committed to and ready for the demanding task of raising the next generation.

The goal of Stay Teen is to encourage young people to enjoy their teen years and avoid the responsibilities that come with too-early pregnancy and parenting.
