Overview

The Adolescent Parenting Program assists local agencies and social services departments in strengthening preventative services to first-time pregnant and parenting adolescents. The program aims to increase self-sufficiency among pregnant adolescents as well as increase the developmental outcomes of children. The program consists of home visiting services, individualized goal plans, case management services, group educational sessions, the establishment of linkages within the community to ensure school continuation and access to health care, employment and educational support, and the enhancement of support systems for adolescent mothers.

Participation in the Adolescent Parenting Program is associated with an increased likelihood of normal birthweight and full term birth. Among program participants aged 12 to 16, the program is associated with delayed subsequent pregnancy.
