Teen Success

The purpose of Teen Success is to help teen mothers maintain their current family size until they complete their high school education and feel ready for another child.  We work toward this goal by providing a weekly supportive environment for teens ages 12-19 years who are pregnant or currently parenting. Participants meet to:

  • Learn information, skills, and behaviors to prevent an additional pregnancy
  • Improve ability to cope with the challenges of parenthood and adolescence
  • Develop skills to build better relationships
  • Receive encouragement to successfully finish their education

What the Teen Success Program Will Do:
