STEP (Successful Transitions through Empowerment and Planning) provides life coaching and mentoring so teens can learn how to live successfully on their own while achieving their educational and vocational goals. STEP program helps teens "STEP" into adulthood better prepared to be independent and productive adults who contribute to and enhance our community.
Teen Parent Connection's cornerstone is our life coaching services. Our highly-trained life coaches directly provide (or ensure referrals to provide) parenting assessments, developmental screenings for children, individualized parenting & life skills education, and vocational training.
Coaches give one-on-one support during home visits and engage teens during monthly group classes on topics such as advocacy, parenting education, nutrition, developmental milestones and positive discipline. We coordinate all efforts to ensure customized, comprehensive services for parent and child.
