YoungLives: Impacting Teen Moms

Volunteer opps.png
Invest in the lives of teen moms through YoungLives!  We meet on the Second Saturday of every month at Tabor Lutheran Church (3542 W. Sunnyside Ave.) in Albany Park .  Right now we are meeting with girls from Roosevelt High School and throughout the North/NW side of Chicago.

Once a month we have the YOUNGLIVES BABY-WEARING DANCE CLUB, with lunch, lots of laughs, line dancing, and a Gospel message that relates to the girls and their place in life. We provide a baby-wearing wrap or carrier for each young mom, instructions and encouragement in baby-wearing, and welcome her to take her wrap or carrier home so that she can wear her baby regularly. We also provide childcare on club days for older children, or they can dance alongside their mommies. Also once a month, the Mentors and Advocates get together for snacks, prayer, and planning.

We need YOU to get involved! 

Be a Mentor
Build a life-on-life mentoring relationship with one or two girls and their children. Connect with them weekly at a time that works for each of you, as well as participating in the Second Saturday Club. Receive training once a month to encourage and equip you in this vital role.
