Santa Clara County STD Community Interventions Program (SCIP)

What is SCIP? 

The STD Community Interventions Program, also known as SCIP, is a statewide program funded by the State of California STD Control Branch. Locally, SCIP is coordinated by Santa Clara County Public Health Department STD & HIV Prevention and Control. SCIP aims to build the capacity of schools, community based agencies, and organizations to integrate STD information into their curriculum, programs, and services.

What does SCIP do? 

SCIP’s approach to sustainable STD prevention programs is to build skills of educators and
program staff, as well as establish collaborations between youth serving community based programs, government projects, and schools via cross training and interagency partnerships that focus on integrating STD prevention into youth development, teen pregnancy prevention, alcohol and drug use and violence prevention.

What services does SCIP offer? 

The local SCIP program will work with your program, school, organization, or district to assess
current activities and create a tailored approach to increasing capacity for STD prevention
through the following services:
  • Identify local resources and gaps in student/youth services
  • Facilitate networking with youth agencies that have complementary program
  • Offer Technical Assistance (TA) on program planning, evaluation, grant writing and
    other program/school needs
  • Provide FREE professional trainings for staff and teachers on STDs, youth
    facilitation, STD and HIV curriculum, program planning, and more!
  • Offer local, State, and National STD information, data, and trends
  • Answer questions and provide appropriate referrals for topics on youth and STDs
  • Provide a FREE STD Lesson Plan Curriculum and health education materials for teachers
    or other youth program staff
