About h-REP

The California Adolescent Health Collaborative, along with community partners in Stanislaus and Merced counties, is implementing the Healthy Relationships and Economic Pathways (H-REP) Program.

H-REP provides Healthy Relationships Education using the Fourth R curriculum. The Fourth R is an evidence-based curriculum that provides opportunities for students to engage in developing healthy relationships and decision-making skills.

CAHC has adapted the curriculum to be CA Healthy Youth Act compliant by including comprehensive sex education requirements.
