Our College Students are Breaking Barriers!


06/01/2017

This may surprise you, but the fact is only 1% of teen moms will graduate from college.

The good news is that the teen moms in our College & Career Program are DESTROYING that stat. So far this year:

17 teen moms successfully completed the Spring semester of college
4 earned a college certification
1 completed an Associate's Degree
1 earned a Bachelor's degree.

This program, which offers free tutoring as well as access to laptops and printers, plays a vital role in helping our teen moms receive the education they need to land a job that pays a sustainable wage.

To date this year our College & Career Program has already served 58 teen moms. For information on how you can support this program, contact lisaschlarbaum@hopehouseofcolorado.org
