Lauren is getting the educational support she needs, at the same time she has learned self-acceptance, thanks to the Children’s Services Council, Hispanic Unity and you.
The CSC-funded Unity 4 Teens program of Hispanic Unity is designed to provide adolescents with reproductive health information, resources and support. The program curriculum is designed to engage students through structured discussions, group exercises, role plays, guest speakers and informational presentations. For Lauren, it has meant help with her most challenging subject, math, as well as a safe place to go after school. A good student, Lauren has come out of her shell with the DreamGirlz component of Unity 4 Teens. Now she dreams big dreams, without getting wrapped up in drugs and alcohol.
