Draw the Line/Respect the Line is a program that emphasizes developing young people’s interpersonal and intrapersonal skills so that they can set sexual limits. Draw the Line/Respect the Line (DTL/RTL) is a three-part program for students in Grades 6, 7, and 8 designed to encourage youth to delay having sexual intercourse to reduce the incidence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV/AIDS, and pregnancy. The curriculum consists of 19 lessons; each is intended to be implemented during a 45–50-minute standard classroom time frame. There are five Grade 6 lessons, seven Grade 7 lessons, and seven Grade 8 lessons.
