Free Teens is a religiously motivated program to promote sexual abstinence before marriage. It describes itself as a "reality-based, abstinence-centered HIV/AIDS, STD, and pregnancy prevention program". It is used in 38 American states and in more than 70 countries and has been translated into 12 languages.
Like most abstinence-based sexual education programs, Free Teens promotes the idea that sex before marriage carries the potential for deleterious consequences, both physical and emotional.
Established by Richard Panzer, a Unificationist based in New Jersey, Free Teens is one of Sun Myung Moon's social-action organizations.
