We are Teen Success, Inc. and this is our story.
Teen Success, Inc. builds pathways to prosperity for two generations—young mothers and their children. We believe that education is the key factor in breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty faced by young families.
Teen Success, Inc. empowers young mothers to complete high school and persist through post-secondary education, and nurture their child’s positive development to ensure the success of the whole family.
The mission of Teen Success, Inc. is to help underserved teen mothers and their children become educated, self-sufficient, valued members of society. .
Teen Success, Inc. was founded in 2011 by former California State Senator Becky Morgan, in response to the high rates of teen pregnancy and lack of programs laser focused on supporting young families to break the cycle of poverty. What began as a weekly peer support group for young mothers has transformed into a an evidenced-informed and research-based program providing comprehensive supports for both young moms and their children, ensuring two generations thrive.
Teen Success, Inc. has supported over 1,800 families since our founding in 2011. Every year, over 85% of our program participants graduate from high school, as compared to 38% of teen mothers nationally. The children of the young mothers we work with are thriving as well, with close to 90% meeting their linguistic milestones which is setting them up to be kindergarten ready.
Teen Success, Inc. transforms lives,
two generations at a time.
