Strengthening Young Mothers: A Qualitative Evaluation of a Pilot Support Group Program
Dickinson, Pauline; Joe, Tara
Youth Studies Australia, v29 n1 p35-44 2010
The Young Mothers Support Group program was designed to engage pregnant teens and young mothers in a youth-driven program tailored to meet their identified needs. Central to the success of the program were the premises that young women would engage in healthy relationships with adults and peers within the program, and were able to actively participate in determining program content and implementation. The evaluation describes the challenges involved in, and early successes of, implementing a youth-focused, youth-driven program. (Contains 1 figure, 2 tables and 6 notes.)
