Young Lives Mentor
In our mission to reach every kid, every where, for eternity, Young Life Kingsport has found that teen pregnancy has been drastically incresing in our community over the last few years. We felt called to reach out to these young ladies and their babies. We found that many of these teen moms needed the support and advice of an older woman. So, Young Lives was born. We pair a Young Lives mentor up with a teen mom. The mentor just gets to know the teen mom and share life with them. Sometimes, it may entail grabbing coffee, taking the teen mom to the Dr's office, playdates, or just talking about life and parenthood.
With Young Lives, we have discovered that a Young Lives mentor impacts two generations with one relationship. If you'd be interested in getting involved in the life of a teen mom and her child, please contact Scottie Dancy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
