Teen Success, Inc. is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty for teen mothers and their children. Teen Success, Inc. provides programming to help teen mothers to complete high school, develop strong parenting skills to nurture their child's positive development and to develop the life skills necessary to thrive.
When mothers do better, their children do better.
TSI support groups consist of 10-12 first-time teen moms. The group dynamic is the "secret sauce" of the program: trusting, supportive relationships are formed which reinforce positive life steps and help guide members back on track when necessary.
The program is intensive: members come together every week, all year long, and attend at least 40 meetings. TSI uses a codified model which includes the following:
Content of meetings is made up of four modules: social and emotional learning, health and wellness, parenting, and education and career.
Meetings are held weekly throughout the year
Group sessions are led by two professional facilitators
Child care is provided during each meeting
Members are given attendance stipends and bonuses
