Help grow Young Moms Club

$205 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 48 months

Young Moms Club was founded by Danielle Ford to offer support and guidance through our website, social platforms and live meetup groups. We are now into our 3rd year of helping teen and young mothers empower themselves and better their lives.

"Not only are young moms themselves the future, but they're also raising the future. By supporting and encouraging these girls rather than criticizing and judging them, we could positively impact the lives of millions of people in a short amount of time. And that would definitely change the world." -Danielle Ford (excerpt from Danielle Ford's TEDXWomen talk "Re inventing teen motherhood" video below)



When a girl becomes a Teen Mom, it automatically feels like the world comes together to say "You Suck at Life!" ..and it can be very difficult to get the courage and confidence back to keep going after her big dreams relentlessly.
She immediately faces the pressures of raising a baby, going to school, and finding a job. With that kind of stress at such a young age, is it really a shock that most teen moms will drop out of school and end up on welfare?

That's where we come in!

We focus on teaching life skills that a lot of young mothers miss out on, while only focused on rasing her baby, such as:

* Goal setting and acheivement
* Communication skills
* Self care
* Financial Literacy
* Healthy Relationships
and more..



The first 2 years the Club was live, it was solely operated by Danielle. Over the past year, the team has expanded and now we're ready to make it EVEN BIGGER and reach more young moms around the world. That's why we need your help.

Your donation will:

*Pay for staff. With more help we can offer more individual support to our current group of 5,000+ young moms and we can help even more. By this time next year, almost 600,000 teenage girls will have a live birth. They need to know we're here.

*Cover publishing costs of the "Young Moms Club" book, which will be used to facilitate live meet up groups throughout the world.

*Help fund online and live workshops that young moms can participate in at no cost as well as help us to network with organizations nationwide to help provide local resources for young moms.

SO YOU WANNA HELP? THAT'S AWESOME!
