THE STORY:

A YOUNG MOTHERS D R E A M INC wrote -

Our mission is to assist young/teen moms in completing their education through a one on one mentorship program. To motivate them to become more accomplished individuals. To instill determination, resilience and excellence as core characteristics for these mothers. To work together to decrease teen pregnancies by promoting abstinence.

The organization pairs young mothers with a mentor who is a former young mother who has gone on to complete her education. We feel its necessary to pair these two because while in theory any mentor should be able to guide these young girls, they respect the mothers who have gone through the same struggle. The mentorship program is one year long and the graduates of the program still have access to the resources that we provide.
During the year the young mother and her mentor are obligated to attend a series of workshops to help build them as individuals. The mentors will meet with the mentees at least once per month to help with guiding them in the right direction. (filling out applications for school etc) The mentees will also be obligated to commit to community service. They will speak to younger girls about their struggles to discourage them from having sex. Once the year is completed each mentee will be eligible for a scholarship to help with the costs of school or daycare. Our hope is that they come back as mentors once they've graduated.
