Teen pregnancy and birth rates have been declining in recent years; however, more than 350,000 adolescents in the U.S. still become parents each year. Teen parents, like all parents, want their children to be healthy and happy, but they often face additional barriers to achieving these outcomes. Young families require specialized attention and services in order to be successful.

This workshop will provide participants with knowledge and skills for understanding the unique needs of adolescent mothers and fathers. We will review the health, educational and social support challenges that these young families face and emphasize practical ways that professionals can support and empower young moms and dads. Information about best practices and local resources will be provided.

Class size is limited to 25.

$50 General Admission
$30 Brown School Field Instructors
