MOPS International is dedicated to meeting the needs of every mother of preschoolers, including teenage girls who find themselves trying to fill the role of "mom" while they are still growing up themselves.
There are just under 100 Teen MOPS groups in the United States and Canada that provide a faith-based, supportive, nonjudgmental environment where teen moms can come together for support and encouragement. In Teen MOPS, the teaching, activities and friendships are all focused on the very distinct needs of teenagers. Teen MOPS helps teen moms become more self-sufficient, confident, mature, giving and self-aware young women.
Teen MOPS groups can meet in public schools or community centers, as well as in churches, and often meet twice a month for teaching and/or activities. All meetings encourage young mothers to voice their frustrations, fears and joys while knowing that their children are well taken care of in the MOPPETS program.
