Title:On Our Way - Education for a Bright Tomorrow
Grant Type: Activation Fund
This grant will allow MassEdCO to expand their On Our Way program to Fitchburg, Leominster and Southbridge, all areas that are dealing with rates of teen pregnancies that are significantly higher than the state average. On Our Way emphasizes a teen mother's education/career preparation and achievement while ensuring that her child's needs and her own parenting needs are being met. MassEdCO will employ its experience and skills in ensuring educational success, while collaborating with local social service providers for other necessary services. This program uses a case manager model to work with each young mother to help her complete high school and move on to post-secondary education.
