What is the problem?
Challenge Given
Strengthen Proyecto Atabey
Expand Proyecto Atabey
Better the Trainings for Mentors
When someone teaches or gives help and advice to a less experienced and often younger person (Merriam-Webster, 2013)
An ancient Taino goddess of fertility or a respected mother (indio.net, 2013)
A widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing (Merriam-Webster, 2014)
Why It Is Important
Family Learning Center
IMPACT Mentoring
Schools in Canada
Illinois Subsequent Pregnancy Program
If the Family Learning Center learns what the young parents would like in a mentor, then the FLC can expect for the students to be more involved in the program.

Arrange meetings during school hours
Offer paid hours or higher stipends for mentors
Make it part of Parenting class
Developed survey questions and audience
Find interviewees
Conduct the interview
Transcribe and code interviews
Codes Found
Need of Support Network
Need of Support Network
Different Steps
Conducted more interviews
Larger age pool
Contact past mentors
Positive advertisement
Keep interviewing
Create activities
Let's Wrap This Up!
The hypothesis was supported!
Background Research
Field Research
FLC Intakes young parent's opinions and needs
Each parent would have their own mentor
Easier access to meetings
Larger support network
Better connection
The data shows that if the FLC interviews students and possible mentors before pairing them up, Proyecto Atabey will become stronger.
Strengthen Proyecto Atabey
Help better the involvement of young parents in the program
Help improve the graduation rates
I am not alone
It's okay to ask for help
People actually care

Going to the doctor you know.Telling them that you’re there for your check up on your kid when you’re a kid. Umm, just providing for them. And just a bad like label that comes with being a -a teen parent. You get looked down upon.
Yeah, I have friends that support me a lot. I have teachers and especially my husband. (whispers and chuckles) But yeah I have more school support, a lot. I’ve been having it since I got here so specially friends they’re there.

I had the responsibility of taking care of her and actually doing homework at the same time...when they're babies, you have to deal with crying, changing diaper, taking care of them.
