This research brief describes a study examining students who participated in a teen pregnancy prevention program, Re:MIX. It presents findings on (1) students’ differing baseline levels of sexual experience (2) whether pre-sexual experience at baseline predicts vaginal sex at 12-month follow-up; and (3) how the knowledge, attitudes, and intentions of students who had pre-sexual experience at baseline compared to those who had no sexual experience or those who had vaginal sex at baseline. Findings highlight the importance of understanding these distinct groups for program implementers and evaluators.
