I am pregnant and under 24

The YWCA has offered a program since 1970 to give pregnant or parenting teenagers an opportunity to finish their educations and improve their chances for better paying jobs.

Today, the Young Parent Support program continues to provide outreach, home visiting, case management, and parenting education as well. What began as the Pregnant Adolescent Girl's Education (PAGE) program, the first program in Springfield to help pregnant and parenting teens stay in school, has expanded to include many more resources.

For teen parenting resources, visit the Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy at or the Children's Trust fund at

The YWCA also offers:

  • Teen Transitional Living Programs in Springfield and Holyoke
  • Workforce Development programs offering assessment and skills development to low-income, at-risk, and out-of-school youths ages 14-21.
  • YouthBuild, which provides 17-24 year-olds with job training and education while they build low-income housing. The YWCA of Western Massachusetts offered the first co-ed version of this national program.
