The grant

In the fall of 2020, the Office of Population Affairs’ Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program awarded Teen HYPE a grant to implement the Promise Program.

Why now?

There is never a bad time to invest in young people; however, the pandemic created an unprecedented sense of urgency.

Our village

The Collaborative/village is open to anyone who is down for our babies and willing to help co-create a citywide plan that moves them from trauma to triumph.
