Peer Groups & Mentoring

Peer Groups give young parents the opportunity to build relationships with families in similar situations. Participants benefit from the positive environment of encouragement and accountability. One-on-one mentoring is also available for more individual support.

BabySteps

This 7-week summer program provides educational, social, and community resources to teens during the summer who are either pregnant or new mothers. Participants take classes focusing on educational tutoring, labor and delivery, infant care, nutrition, peer group counseling, and parenting.
