WHO WE ARE

Real Alternatives is nonprofit, tax-exempt, charitable corporation founded in 1996. From its very beginning, Real Alternatives has been at the forefront of promoting a safe, healthy, and responsible lifestyle for teens and young adults. In light of the medically known epidemic of sexually transmitted infections and diseases in our teen and young adult population, combined with the known failure of contraceptives to prevent teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, Real Alternatives has consistently promoted and encouraged living a chaste lifestyle as the healthiest lifestyle for single teens and young adults.

Though contraceptives have some success in lowering the risk of an unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, none of them prevent or eliminate the risk entirely. The repercussions of this failure can be devastating physically, mentally, and emotionally. Real Alternatives encourages behavior modification (chaste lifestyle) as safer than behavior accommodation (contraceptives) for teens and young adults.
