YoungLives addresses teen moms' pressing needs by creating a community that connects them to an anchored and supportive environment, educating and empowering them with life and parenting skills, and mentoring to improve the quality of life for young mothers and their children with the hope of decreasing the high dropout rates of teen moms in NYC.
Treating each mom and her child or children with unconditional love and respect, YoungLives offers teen moms relief from the isolation and struggle of their daily lives and hope for the future.
Volunteer Leaders meet regularly with their mentee through weekly group activities, and individually on their own time.
To learn more, Request Information -- you'll be connected with the Team Leader. There's a training and background check required for serving, which will be sent via email once connected. Due to the nature of this responsibility we do ask that those interested are pursuing their own personal relationship with God.
