Teen Mothers Program

In partnership with ACSA, YWCA is offering a drop in program for young women.  YWCA Toronto offers a free support program in Scarborough for mothers 14 to 22 years of age. In the Teen Mothers' program, we offer opportunities to build positive parenting skills and gain access to resources that support mothers on their parenting journey.

This program initially began targeting young mothers, focusing on single  women with babies. The level of participation in this group greatly shapes the programming and workshops facilitated to the group participants. Overall, the teen mothers program has regular group meetings and check-ins with the program worker and childcare staff, along with workshops on positive parenting, budgeting, nutrition, career guidance, free meals, and snacks.

For more information please contact Amy Brooks, Program Worker at YWCA 416-266-1232 X30.
