This November, Alliance of Moms invites 60 pregnant and parenting teens in foster care and their children to participate in Raising Baby. This event is a day of interactive workshops that empowers young parents in foster care to become the kind of parents they want to be but never had themselves. Underserved foster youth engage with parenting experts and learn practical tips about how to help develop their babies’ brains during the critical first years of life. While the young moms and dads are learning, Alliance of Moms member volunteers provide childcare for their kids. A DJ spins during breaks, lunch is provided and goody bags are gifted at the end of the day.
It’s interactive. It’s fun. It changes lives.
Date: November 18th, 2017
