Carrera Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program
Home About Us Our Program Resources Get Involved Contact Us

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 the lives 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 premium 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 forget 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 in which all help occurs. Genuine caring for teens is our principle currency.
