BENEFITING: Her Future Teen Mom Empowerment Group Inc
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2017
I am raising $250 for an organization devoted to walking along-side teen mothers and provide a “village” of support while raising their children.
3 in 10 teen American girls will get pregnant at least once before age 20. That’s nearly 750,000 teen pregnancies every year. Parenthood is the leading reason that teen girls drop out of school. More than 50% of teen mothers never graduate from high school and less than 2% of teen moms earn a college degree by age 30. Teen mothers need to be encouraged so that they may care for their children and themselves in the best possible manner and YOU CAN HELP!
Her Future: Teen Mom Empowerment Group’s mission is to empower young mothers and affirm their ability to be good parents by providing support, and offering encouragement through mentoring, life skills training, parenting classes, and workshops.
“…teen parenting does not have to be the end of the road, but can be the beginning of a bright future.” Lauren Cole, Her Future TMEG Founder
"Her Future: Teen Mom Empowerment Group has brought absolute joy to my life and has made me realize that just because I am a teen mother, it doesn't mean that my life is over. They helped me understand that taking care of my child is important but selfcare is just as important. I have become a better parent and individual because of Her Future: TMEG.” Desyree, Teen Mother
