TEEN PARENT PROGRAM
ONEgeneration’s school based program combines individual services, strong linkages to community resources and peer group education sessions to help first time pregnant and parenting teens avoid subsequent pregnancies. Core activities of the program revolve around a series of weekly workshops and presentations to help each participant with the following goals: (1) avoid a subsequent pregnancy, (2) connect with resources and services in the community, (3) enhance parenting abilities and understanding of child development, (4) remain in high school with the goal of graduation/completion, and (5) preparation to achieve their education and career goals.
To reach these objectives, ONEgeneration collaborates with local providers and agencies to connect participants with clinical services and community resources. We also integrate senior volunteers who serve as mentors for encouragement and support. To date, ONEgeneration has facilitated this program at the following high schools (John R. Wooden High School, Cleveland, James Monroe, Van Nuys, Will Rogers, Cal Burke, and Polytechnic).
