College Moms Project

Only 1.5% of women who give birth as teens ever graduate from college. The mission of the College Moms Project is to ensure that teen mothers finish high school and graduate from college at the same rates as non-parenting women, which is nearly 40%.

    College Moms Project

    We have spent almost four years investigating the reasons why only 1.5% of teen mothers graduate from college. We've built partnerships with L.A.-based maternity homes, social service agencies, public schools, charter schools, colleges, universities, childcare agencies and women's mentorship teams within leading companies -- all without seeking outside funding. Our objective for the coming year is to fully implement the programs we've developed and expand our capacity to reach hundreds of teen moms.
