About Melissa

I have been working for an organization that has a specific program for adolescent teen mothers preparing them for their GED while learning valuable life and parenting skills. Their children are adjacent in an early learning center receiving quality child care exiting at developmentally age appropriate levels.

I have seen first-hand how this program changes lives and is part of the solution to building stronger communities. Many states do not have this type of program for young women to continue their education and provide a better life for themselves and their child. They age out of high-school or traditional high school setting did not work, they are left with limited resources. I am exploring ways to utilize the model we have here and expand it nationwide.
