Promising Partners vision is to be an organization that offers teen parents guidance and encouragement to achieve self-sufficiency by completing high school, seeking further education opportunities and achieving life goals.
We are committed to practicing and demonstrating respect.We are honest with our clients, staff, and board members.We have compassion for our clients and their life goals.We expect clients to be accountable for their life choices and changes.We encourage clients to focus on self-development.We encourage and support clients life goals and further education.We treat others the way we would like to be treated.
Promising Partners programs focus on drop-out prevention, further education and personal development for teen parents, ultimately breaking the cycle of educational and economic failure in the youngest of families. Implementation of our programs will be in three phases to align the organization for success as financial and human resources increase.
Mentoring Program (Phase I)
Promising Partners mentoring program matches teen parents (mothers and fathers) with volunteer mentors from the community. Mentors are required to meet with their mentees at least four to six hours per month for one year, offering guidance and encouragement to their mentee.
Peer-to-Peer Support Group (Phase II)
This group will meet once a month and is a time "Just for You" with other teen parents, ages 13 to 19 to share parenting techniques, life issues and encourage each other through rough times, providing peer based emotional and social support. Light snacks and child care will be provided.
Life Skills Workshops (Phase III)
Workshops will be scheduled once a month, focusing on skills that are necessary to meet life goals such as goal setting, job readiness, character building, self-esteem, parenting, and career planning to name a few.
Mission: Promising Partners (PP) is a non-profit organization serving teen parents ages 13 to 19 in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
