Charlene Becker is Globe’s Parent Educator and Case Manager for Arizona Youth Partnership’s ‘Starting Out Right’ program, and describes the new class series: “We’ll have more classes during February, March and April. The one that begins Wednesday of next week is specifically for pregnant or parenting teens up to age 19. We explore a variety of topics ranging from financial literacy to job searching tips, how to prepare for your job interview and maintaining a budget for yourself or your household. We talk about careers and goal-setting. Males and females are both equally welcome. Other topics over the six weeks that we’ll meet include HIV and other STDs and how those could affect their lives. We talk about birth control and condoms, and I teach about the stages of pregnancy, and parenting - if they already have a child.”
