Program Summary

AIM 4 Teen Moms seeks to reduce rapid repeat pregnancies by helping teen mothers define specific life aspirations, engage in planning to successfully achieve them, and consider the role of contraception in their lives. The ten-week program consists of six one-hour individual sessions, one ninety-minute group session at the half-way point, and another 90-minute group session at the end of the program. It is delivered in teens' homes and/or community-based locations, by trained facilitators (called Advisors).
