THE STORY:

Advocates for Adolescent Mothers is raising money for our Educational Empowerment Program.

Statistics show that less than 2% of teen moms graduate from college before the age of 30.

The Educational Empowerment program is an asset-based, antipoverty program designed to prevent child abuse and increase the number of young mothers who graduate from college, by educating them about child development, and addressing specific barriers that often prevent college completion.

Participants of the Educational Empowerment Program receive mentoring, participate in informational workshops, and are offered financial support. Participants establish long and short term goals each year. Workshops focus on leadership, study skills, personal development, critical thinking, life skills, and parenting. Each participant receives information about children’s developmental milestones based on her child’s age at each workshop. Participants are taught about the importance of the parent child attachment and bond, and their significance to preventing child abuse. Additionally, participants are offered descriptions of activities that they can do with their babies to encourage learning, development, and strengthen the attachment and bond with their children. Participants also enjoy social events/activities and are offered opportunities to volunteer in the community.

Participants receive a grant of $500 to help subsidize their cost of attending college.

The cost of administering the grant is approximately $2000 per student. Please make a tax-deductible donation by May 31st to help us reach our goal.

Additional program details and program applications are available at http://bit.ly/EEP2014.
