YoungLives offers hope for a bright future to teen moms, believing these girls deserve to know that God has great plans for them. The heart of the YoungLives ministry is the building of one-on-one mentoring relationships between adult Christian women and teen moms. The bridge that’s built through unconditional love, friendship, and practical help paves the way for mentors to share the message of Jesus Christ.
We took a national survey of over 2,000 of our teen moms, and we discovered that the longer teen moms are involved in YoungLives, the greater the impact on their self-esteem, parenting skills, graduation rates, sense of hope, sense of purpose, and faith. For instance, teen moms who are involved in YoungLives for two years or more are three times as likely to graduate from high school or earn their GED as girls who have been involved for less than two months - and 58% of teen moms report accepting Christ because of YoungLives (an additional 28% report that they accepted Christ outside of YoungLives). These statistics take into account girls' age and initial behaviors, so the outcomes can all be attributed to their involvement in YoungLives. It is so exciting to finally have the numbers to prove what we have known all along: YoungLives mentoring relationships + Jesus = life change!
