Teens Parenting. Project Seed.
Drasby, Gail; And Others
One of eight papers from Project Seed, this paper describes Teens Parenting, a program that brings together a group of parenting teenagers for a 20-week learning experience using the "Nurturing Program for Teenage Parents and Their Families." It is noted that the program is open to all teenage parents in the area, whether or not they are currently enrolled in the school system. Four steps are included in the procedures and instructions section. Facilitators are encouraged to: (1) familiarize themselves with the "Nurturing Program for Teenage Parents and Their Families" curriculum; (2) formulate a list of teenage parents in their school or community and invite them to join the program; (3) hold an informal orientation session for parents and their children to meet the class facilitators, other teenage parents, and the child care providers; and (4) conduct successive class meetings by following the "Nurturing Program for Teenage Parents and Their Families" curriculum. The program purposes, goals, and objectives are discussed; anticipated outcomes are described. Resources needed to implement the program are listed and the project cost is estimated to be between $300 and $500 for a class of six to eight teenage parents and their children. (NB)
