The Young Parent Support Program is a free and voluntary Aurora Public Schools resource.
YPSP partners with pregnant and parenting students to help them be successful in school and in their future!
The YPSP is open to any pregnant or parenting student (teen moms and dads) enrolled in an APS school, which includes associated charter schools and alternative academic programs.
If you are under 21 years old, live in Aurora, are pregnant or parenting, and have not completed high school or obtained a GED, the YPSP can help you find the educational program best suited for your needs.
Being part of the YPSP means you will have individualized support from a Young Parent Advocate, the Program Nurse, and the Program Social Worker. The YPSP team members can meet with you in your school, at home, or in the community.
The YPSP team will help you collaborate with the staff at your school and with community resources to ensure you are supported as a parenting student!
