Graduating from our Community Program requires 80 hours of class time plus GED and college or vocational classes – making it no easy task. Additionally our teen moms are also busy working, going to school, and being a mom!
From taking our Parenting and Healthy Relationships classes to attending workshops on Financial Literacy, Job Readiness and more, these young ladies have put in the hard work to become a graduate.
We are proud of each of them, and we believe that the world will be a better place as these resilient girls follow their dreams! Take a peek below to see what each of our graduates is planning next!
