Teen Success was founded through the collaborative efforts of Becky Morgan, former California state senator and president of the Morgan Family Foundation, and Linda Williams, President/CEO of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (PPMM). Since 1990, Teen Success groups have served pregnant and parenting teens, ages 12-18, through weekly support-group meetings. Teen Success participants learn skills to:
- Maintain their family size
- Complete their high school/vocational school/GED education
- Develop life skills that lead to self-sufficiency

PPMM is seeking affiliates and community partners that would like to replicate Teen Success in their communities. A total of 25 replication sites will be established over the next few years. A donor provides support to assist replication partners with the costs of establishing and conducting Teen Success during the first 3 years of program operation, and PPMM staff provide training, ongoing support and technical assistance.
