Teen Parent Program
The Teen Parent Program at Henry D. Perry Education Center enables pregnant and parenting teens the experience of earning a standard high school diploma while gaining valuable parenting skills. We provide students with free childcare in our award winning Child Development Center. Teen mothers, fathers and pregnant teens enroll in unique parenting classes, participate in regular seminars, and are provided with unique resources including an on-site nurse, social worker and staff from Broward’s own Healthy Start Coalition. Transportation is provided for all members of the Teen Parent Program through the District Transportation System.
Ultimately, our goal is to educate the teen parent as a whole. To ensure that when the parent leaves our program, he or she has earned a high school diploma, is enrolled in or has been accepted in a post-secondary institution such as one of our District’s outstanding Technical Centers or college, and is parenting successfully.
