Young Mom’s Support Groups

Supportive peer networks are created for young moms during weekly group meetings at UAY. Young mom’s meet other parents, share their parenting stories and build important new friendships. Meeting other young moms shows young parents they’re not alone, and helps them feel supported.

During these meetings young moms gather important information on personal and parental skill building, listen to speakers on a variety of topics and participate in fun recreational and craft activities. For attending the meetings, youth receive an incentive, such as diapers, wipes, child toys, or self-care items. Snacks, childcare and transportation are all available!


Groups are held Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Contact a Teen Parent Family Support Worker at UAY to check on group times and openings.
