Students Receiving Trophy


The Care Center's Young Parents Regatta brings together teen mothers from across Massachusetts for a friendly rowing competition on the Connecticut River. Nearly 50 women from three cities compete and more than 100 spectators typically attend. There is a great sense of camaraderie as students’ families and teachers gather to cheer on the teams and celebrate their hard work. It's a fun, family-friendly event with face-painting and other activities for the little ones.

Volunteers will hand out flyers, cheer on the rowers, serve lunch, and help cleanup.

The Care Center helps low-income mothers who have dropped out of school prepare for college and careers by combining rich, rigorous academics with supports like daycare, transportation and medical care.
