Making a Difference and Impacting Two-Generations

  • Over 85% of our participants graduate high school or are on track to graduate when they complete the program, versus only 38% of young mothers who graduate nationally.
  • Our participants read to their children an average of 16 minutes daily, setting them up for their own success in school.
  • 88% of our participants’ children are meeting their linguistic milestones, indicating that they will be kindergarten-ready.

Why We Must Empower Young Mothers

Teen Success, Inc. serves young families in low-income communities across California where teen pregnancy rates remain high.

Teen pregnancy disproportionately affects young women of color and the moms in our program often face a cycle of poverty and young parenthood that clings on generation after generation.

Your donation today can help break the cycle of poverty and close the education gap young women of color are facing.

With your support, young mothers can graduate high school, succeed in post-secondary education and break the cycle of poverty for their families.

Your donation today ensures young families get the support they need and opens the door for two generations, young mothers and their children, to achieve their full potential.
