    About the Program

    Early love represents all of what’s exciting and magical about the teenage years but it’s also the source of some of the biggest dangers. Older boys pressure young girls to have sex, sometimes causing disease, pregnancy and depression; boys pressure other boys by linking conquest to popularity; and many teen romances end with dating violence. First Comes Love examines some of today’s pressures regarding love and how teens view and define relationships and dating.
