“Young men are often left out of teen pregnancy conversations and they need to be informed,” Cousar told the crowd. Inspired by his peer counseling work in the community, he wrote a song addressing the topic of teen pregnancy titled Risky Business. Recalling his experience performing it for Fonda, Cousar said, “She loved it. I remember thinking if this iconic Hollywood mega star, if she, with everything else she has going on, is devoted to making young peoples’ lives better, then I have to do my part as well. As a college student and peer educator, this program has taught me how to be an effective leader and how to take responsibility for my actions. G-CAPP taught me to never give up on my dreams and that I have the potential to be whatever I want to be. Ms. Fonda, because of you and G-CAPP, I am a better man.”
