Encouraging teen mothers to build a foundation for their lives based on integrity, commitment and empowerment.
To mobilize resources that positively impacts the development of young women with children to assure healthy life balance.
Our vision is to create a platform for teen mothers to become role models for their children while empowering them to develop their potential as capable, self-sufficient citizens of our society.
Our program is designed to empower teen mothers before, during, and after their transition into motherhood. We offer a wide variety of research-based educational resources that enhances our participants’ knowledge of financial literacy, technical and career training, along with access to health and wellness resources for their families. Educating and mentoring teens is an essential aspect of the program, as it encourages them to feel empowered and committed to the success of their child’s healthy development.
