CHILDREN: OUR ULTIMATE INVESTMENT
April 16, 2011

Children: Our Ultimate Investment, a non-profit established in 1978 by the humanitarian, author and social activist Laura Huxley addresses the problems of at-risk teenagers through Teens & Toddlers programs that educate and guide adolescents toward positive life choices. The teens care for and interact with infants and toddlers; learn through pragmatic experience and classroom instruction how to prevent irresponsible sexual activity and premature parenthood. The Teens & Toddlers program, for the past thirty years in the U.S. and the past fifteen years in England, has helped to reduce the statistics of teenage pregnancies. Laura Huxley had a vision of the "possible human being" and Children: Our Ultimate Investment is a step toward that goal.
