Teen Parent Mentoring Program
The Teen Parent Mentoring Program matches any pregnant or parenting teen, ages 13-21, with an adult, female mentor. Our mentors believe that teen parents (and their babies) deserve a better chance. Mentors provide friendship, education, and experiences to support teen parents as they face their future. They serve as supportive, caring role models, focusing on health care for the mother and her baby; educational and employment goals; child development and parenting; community services; and family planning.
What Do Mentors Do?
Spend time each week with the mother and her child
Provide guidance to community resources and services available to the family
Help the mother with independent living, continuing education and employment goals
HAVE FUN with the mom and baby
Who Can Participate?
Any pregnant or parenting mom, ages 13-21, who would like extra support and friendship from a caring adult can participate in the program. Participants must reside within Outagamie, Winnebago or Calumet County.
