The Young Parents Support Network empowers teen moms and dads to realize their full potential.

Adult Mentors provide support for pregnant or parenting teens while they finish school, prepare for higher education or a career.

The Young Parents Support Network (YPSN) is a teen parent mentoring program of The Center Foundation. YPSN was developed in collaboration with Project ELECT of the Delaware County Intermediate Unit, which remains a formal partner in the project.

YPSN Mentors

YPSN Mentors are compassionate female and male volunteers who provide one-on-one mentoring to pregnant or parenting teens, aged 12-19, for one year.

YPSN mentors work with mentees on goals such as:
  • Completing high school
  • Working on parenting skills
  • Communication and problem solving skills
  • Career and educational planning

YPSN Mentees

Are you a pregnant or teen parent who could use some extra support in your life? The Young Parents Support Network provides free mentoring and other services to help you during this time.

Teens who participate in the YPSN program meet with their Mentors once a week to:
  • Share in cultural, educational, and sports activities
  • Work toward academic, career and personal goals
  • Get support dealing with school and parenting issues
  • Learn about career options and community resources.

Eligible YPSN Mentees may also have the opportunity to participate in our young parents program, which supports job readiness and career development goals.
