NEWS & EVENTS

Without proper education, advocacy and support teen parents will have a significantly higher chance of using the social welfare system – cash assistance, food stamps, subsidized housing and involvement with Children & Youth protective services.

Empowering and educating these young people will make them more likely to stay in school and graduate, find employment with good benefits, prepare their children for school and become productive members of the community.
