Investing in Supports for Pregnant and Parenting Adolescents and Young Adults

Adolescent parents face multiple obstacles in raising a child while still working to fully become adults themselves.

For young parents who are currently in or who have aged out of foster care, the challenges are even more acute. Public and private investors need to support efforts to better equip adolescent mothers and fathers who have experienced foster care to become successful adults and parents; and to work to prevent or delay pregnancy until young people are ready to take on the responsibilities of parenthood and adult living.

By clicking the link below, you will be able to gain the current knowledge on pregnancy and parenthood in adolescents and young adults, current challenges, and investment opportunities.
