An annual day to show support for pregnant and parenting youth in MI!
Michigan Youth Parenting Awareness Day (MYPAD) was created to recognize and honor the pregnant and parenting teens in Michigan and provide them with an opportunity to share their lives and accomplishments. MYPAD gives young parents a platform to 1) build community connections, 2) reflect on their experiences, 3) assess their needs regarding education, employment, interpersonal relationships, health care, finances, and housing, 4) develop an advocacy agenda for programs and policies that will help themselves and their families thrive; and 5) engage in activism.
The next MYPAD date is Friday, March 22, 2019! We will release materials closer to that date. Feel free to view the 2018 toolkit for more info about MYPAD, including blurbs on MYPAD's development and goals; ideas for virtual and in-person events; sample resolutions, press releases, and social media posts; and more!
