NYC Teen Parents Conference Photos

The conference was a HIT! There was an overwhelming amount of support and help to make the day amazing and great for everyone. Council Woman Palma's keynote address was very honest, inspiring, and empowering for everyone in the room.

Everyone had high remarks for the Mental Health and Wellness Workshop by JAIA YOUth Empowerment, the Sexual Health, Wellness, and Safe Pleasure workshop facilitated by Adjoa Tetteh had some great talking points and so much GREAT information, and the Advocacy workshop by National Latinas Institute for Reproductive Health provided a short intro to the importance of advocacy for themselves and their families.
