With over 30 years of hard work thus far, the Children’s Aid Society and the Carrera
Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program continue to touch the lives of teens and
their families nationwide. We have been fortunate to have made such a difference in
of the individuals who have taken part in our programs. Seeing and feeling the
results on a day-to-day basis, is what makes us strive to reach more. We also put a
on engaging teens, maintaining this gentle and generous engagement even when a
young person seems not to care. Teens often forget what we say or do, but they rarely
how we make them feel. We help by caring, being present, forgiving, and offering
a stable environment; always communicating that they are special. Caring is the context
all help occurs. Genuine caring for teens is our principle currency.
The following is a list of some New York City and community teens and
adults who graduated from college through the support of the Children's
Aid Society's Carrera program.
