TEEN MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
Our middle and high school girls are being transformed into community leaders through the power of mentorship! The years of a female adolescent are some of the most difficult years that they will encounter as they will battle negative peer influences that will affect their self-esteem and academic performance.
In our mentorship program, we aim to reduce defiant and risky behaviors, increase graduation rates, build confidence and self-esteem, educate on purity and abstinence, decrease teenage pregnancy rates, and foster healthy relationships. Mentees will participate in monthly gatherings while building lasting friendships and developing important life skills.
PREGNANT & PARENTING YOUNG MOTHERS PROGRAM
We understand the importance of having your basic needs met. With that, we have implemented a program to provide resources to young mothers, 23and under, who are in need. Motherhood is a difficult journey that many women will embark upon. Power Forward aims to lighten the load and decrease stress of young mothers who struggle to provide their baby with its basic necessities. With this program, we provide our young mothers with a variety of resources including car seats, baby clothing, diapers, wipes, formula, baby tubs, bassinets, and more! Our young mothers have the opportunity to attend our parenting classes, as well as other community events hosted by the agency.
TEEN LIFE SKILLS PROGRAM
It is our mission to help young girls break barriers and open doors to a brighter future. With that, we offer a variety of life skills workshops to provide the teens in our community the resources needed to be successful. Some of the workshops that are offered are financial literacy workshops, dating and teen dating violence workshops, career counseling workshops, college preparation workshops, and monthly health awareness workshops.
