Adolescent Parenting Program (APP) provides support for parenting teens up to age 17. The program works to help parenting teens remain in school, graduate from high school, and delay a second pregnancy. 

We are seeking adult mentors in New Hanover and Pender counties! Mentors must be at least 21 years of age, have a cell-phone, reliable transportation, and be a high school graduate.  Mentors must be able to commit to spending at least four hours per month for one year to a teen parent. 

Mentor duties include:

  • serving as a positive role model
  • encouraging good parenting skills
  • encouraging school attendance
  • helping with transportation
  • attending monthly peer group meetings with a teen parent
  • encouraging responsible sexual behavior

Most importantly, a mentor is a friend and advocate for a parenting teen!

To learn more about the APP Program, teen enrollment or mentoring possibilities, please contact Dana King ([email protected]) or 910-762-5566 ext. 7244
