Groups & Classes for Young Dads & Teen Moms
Group activities allow young parents to learn from each other in a safe environment while reducing social isolation. Participants can discuss what life is like for teen parents and learn techniques to handle this new responsibility while socializing with their peers.
Prenatal Classes for Young Dads and Teen Moms
Prenatal classes are offered for two consecutive evenings (Wednesday and Thursday) every six weeks to pregnant young women up to age 21, and one support person.
