TEEN MOMS PROGRAM

The Teen Moms program at CYM seeks to serve young mothers in transforming their lives. CYM believes that every teen mother deserves an opportunity to be successful. 

 

Each year The Teen Mom programs serve more than 20 young mothers throughout the communities of Reedley, Orange Cove, and Dinuba California. Originally CYM’s Teen Mom Program started 15 years ago with the hopes of making a big impact on young mother’s lives. 

CYM also partners with generous donors for our Transitional Program that provides support for mothers over the age of 18. CYM is able to equip teen mothers with a firm foundation in Christ and develop a positive outlook on life. This provides a stable and constructive environment for their children.

ANNUAL TEEN MOMS RETREAT

Through the support of donations and volunteers, CYM is able to host a yearly weekend retreat at Calvin Crest.The weekend consists of group sessions, worship, outdoor activities, crafts, prayer, and family time. It provides a weekend that most young mothers would never experience outside of the Teen Mom Program.

MEET BRENDA

One particular success from the Teen Mom program is Brenda, who attends a group in Orange Cove.  

 

Brenda worked hard to return to traditional high school (rather than independent studies) after giving birth to her baby boy.  Brenda completed her education and will be attending Fresno State in the Fall.  Brenda is not only the recipient of several scholarships, but she was also awarded the Teen Success Inc scholarship for her work in our program. 

 

In addition, Brenda was the winner of a contest at OCHS for her successful business plan, selling baked goods.  She went on to compete at FSU and is headed to New York in October to present her business plan. 

 

Brenda acknowledges that the support and education from our program have contributed to her success. She started to attend the Teen Success group in the hopes of looking for a connection with other young mothers: who can relate to her story.
