Abstract

It has been noted that the effects of teen pregnancy on the mother are numerous. Majority of the time the mother is the sole provider and care taker of the child, resulting in less time for the mother to pursue her own educational goals. The purpose of this research is to analyze the various higher education institution support programs – or lack thereof – that are available to mothers who experienced teen pregnancy. The most applicable support program that mothers request is affordable childcare. This study will conduct research to gather information on the various experiences that teen mothers have with on-campus childcare services. Research will also be conducted on other programs that higher education institutions currently have in place for mothers along with their obtainability and effectiveness. Additional potential interventions will also be addressed to offer assistance in the enrollment and retention of teen mothers as students in higher education.
