EDGE focuses on the following needs:
One-on-one mentoring services with trained mentors. Visits 2-4 times a month with an adult volunteer help teens increase academic performance and emotional well being.
Young Expectant Mothers:
Mentoring services from experienced mothers help mothers to understand how to stay healthy during pregnancy and to prepare for their baby. Courses supplement this knowledge with pregnancy nutrition information, breastfeeding training, and baby care.
Mentoring from other experienced parents, as well as parenting and child care classes, help young parents to raise their child with love and care. Additional courses on skills like productive discipline, healthful cooking on a budget, and engaging your child’s school also assist young parents.
