Palm Beach County Teen Mom Mentorship Program Seeking Mentors

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. – There is a growing demand for mentors needed to support teenage mothers in Palm Beach County.

Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Palm Beach County is calling for volunteers to join the Caps & Cribs mentorship program.

The Teen Mom Mentorship Program supports pregnant and parenting high school teens by connecting them with professional women in Palm Beach County and beyond.

Once a mentor is paired with a mentee, the pair will meet once a week for at least an hour in person or virtually to offer encouragement and support.

Mentors allow their mentees to stay in school and plan for their future while dealing with the new challenges that come with raising a child.

Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies provides the training and resources needed to help volunteers connect with their designated teen mom while building a trusting relationship that will last a lifetime.

The program is accredited by the National Quality Mentoring System by MENTOR, the national mentoring partnership.

This badge is evidence-based recognition of the safety and effectiveness of the Caps and Cribs program and assures mentees, funders and decision-makers that the program meets national quality standards and procedures for the operation of a mentorship program.

Caps and Cribs is one of only six nonprofit programs in Florida to have achieved accreditation.

Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Palm Beach County is a nonprofit organization that improves birth outcomes through the compassionate and equitable delivery of early prenatal care, education, and support to all pregnant women in our communities .

Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies has three upcoming mentor training sessions:
