Our Teen Programs empower teen parents and girls to realize their full potential.

Adult mentors provide support for pregnant, parenting, and at-risk teens while they finish school and prepare for their future.

The Center Foundation has two mentorship programs for teens ages thirteen to nineteen: Young Parents Support Network (YPSN), a teen parent mentoring program, and TeenCare, for teen girls at-risk of not graduating high school.

Both programs primarily serve teens in Delaware County, PA, as well as surrounding counties in the region. Our program matches mentees with trained, volunteer mentors for one year.

Mentees, with the support of their mentors, set specific self-sufficiency goals to achieve in that year. The mentors meet on a weekly basis with their mentees to provide advice, guidance, and friendship.

Staff provides case management support, skills-based workshops, and aftercare to our mentees. All workshops and special family events are free, and all mentees receive assistance with childcare and transportation costs related to the program.

If you are interested in receiving or becoming a mentor, please contact Jane Todd, our Program Director, at Jane@TheCF.org or 610-565-6171.

Mentors

Mentors are compassionate volunteers who provide one-on-one mentoring to pregnant, parenting, and at-risk teens.

Mentors work with mentees on goals such as:
  • Completion of high school and tutoring
  • Career and educational pathing
  • Employment opportunities
  • Communication and problem solving
  • Personal growth
  • Development of parenting skills (if applicable)

Give back and share your experience. Help a teen reach their goals in life. We offer training for mentors.

Mentees

Are you pregnant, a teen parent or teen girl who could use some extra support in life? The Center Foundation provides free mentoring and other services to help you during this important time in your life.

Teens who participate in our program meet with their mentors to:
  • Share in educational, social, and recreational activities
  • Work toward academic, career, and personal goals
  • Get support dealing with school and (if applicable) parenting issues
  • Learn about community resources.

You don't have to face the challenges of being a teen alone. Apply to be matched with a mentor today.
