To eliminate teen pregnancy by addressing its root causes, assuring high school graduation, and promoting adult self-sufficiency. To provide long-term, comprehensive, holistic services by creating a parallel family structure with neighborhood youth and parents. (Diplomas Before Diapers)
Pathways/Senderos is a neighborhood-based program that targets poverty-stricken youth and their families for comprehensive, holistic services designed ultimately to prevent teen pregnancy.
It is based on a highly successful program begun in the 1980's by Dr. Michael Carrera and the Children's Aid Society. The Carrera model uses a case management approach to provide long-term, intensive services for youth and their families.
Our program model includes six integrated components: academic support; career preparation; family life and sex education; recreation/lifetime sports; health care; and self-esteem enhancement.
