Education Empowerment Program
“Only 40% of teen mothers finish high school. Fewer than 2% finish college by age 30.”
Education is a very powerful tool against poverty. While this is true, fewer than 2% of teen mothers earn a college degree by the age of 30. The Robin Terry Foundation, Inc. understands that a majority of young mothers don’t earn their degrees because of limited resources available to them.
The Education Empowerment Program is designed to equip young mothers to break the cycle of poverty by first completing high school or obtaining their GED, educating them about child development, offering life skills training, addressing barriers that prevent them from completing college, and by increasing the number of young mothers who graduate from college.
“Young women who give birth while attending a community college are 65% less likely to complete their degree than women who do not have children during that time”
Young mothers who complete our program will have bonded with their child(ren), delayed subsequent pregnancies, and will have graduated from high school and earned a college degree.
