YWCA Jamestown finished another successful year of their Teenage Education and Motherhood (TEAM) program. Through TEAM, young women ages 12-21 years old, who are at least four months pregnant or have a child under three years old, can receive support and guidance as they complete their high school education. 2018 TEAM graduate, Maria, says of the program: “If it wasn’t for TEAM, I have no clue where my life would be right now. You guys saved me and you’re the reason I’m an amazing mother.”
According to TEAM school counselor and program director Michelle Cobbe, the work is most rewarding when students like Maria accomplish their goals.
“I always tell them that it is an honor to be part of their journey” says Michelle.
Congratulations to all the 2018 TEAM graduates!
