Viviana and Maya#GivingTuesday makes a difference for young families like Viviana and Maya from San Jose. After giving birth to her daughter Maya, Viviana had trouble getting back into school. She reached out to Teen Success, Inc. who helped her re-enroll at Opportunity Youth Academy.
Viviana worked hard to graduate school, often attending classes with Maya sitting on her lap. She considers her greatest achievement (so far) graduating from high school. Viviana attends Evergreen Community College and studies Business Administration.
About Teen Success, Inc.
Teen Success, Inc. empowers high school age young mothers to attain success in school and in life, so their children will also thrive. Nationally, only 38% of teen mothers graduate high school, in the Teen Success, Inc. program 93% of participants graduate high school or are on track to do so when they complete our program.
Two-Generation Approach: Our members often face a cycle of poverty that has clung on generation after generation (64% of our participants are children of teen parents). Our approach breaks that cycle. Participants take part in 18 months of one-on-one coaching and peer learning group to focus on their educational path, develop life skills, deepen their knowledge of reproductive health, and grow their parenting skills.
By recognizing the resourcefulness and resilience of young women who become mothers in their teens, we will open the door for more young mothers and their children to achieve their full potential.
