Our mission is to educate and prepare our youth to reach their full potential through programs that address teen pregnancy prevention, non-violent parenting, life skills, continued education and job opportunities.
Children: Our Ultimate Investment's unique Teens and Toddlers program combines classroom curriculum with one-on-one interaction between at-risk teens and preschoolers. The program is founded on creating an environment where at-risk teens, ages of 15 – 19, can learn the demands of raising a child at such a young age through classroom instruction and volunteer work through local preschools. Providing teenagers with alternative choices to becoming parents before they are truly ready, the T&T curriculum addresses the following key points to aid our youth's choices and better equip them for their future: Interpersonal skills and how to form healthy relationships; STD and reproductive health T&T graduates learn ‘real world’ skills, and begin making alternative choices to becoming a teenage parent. Some of the program benefits include: Postponing of pregnancy Increased interest in learning; lower truancy and crime rates A new-found sense of self-confidence, respect for self and others The ability to make informed choices based upon their own decisions and not through peer pressure Education of STDs and awareness of sexual responsibility helps reduce personal crises, social stressors, and burden to taxpayers, government social services and public assistance programs This past year COUI hired a Development Director and a Marketing Director to help in our efforts to expand this amazing program into more locations within the greater Los Angeles area. In addition, we are working with the LAUSD to modify our curriculum for approval as a compliment to the existing health class graduation requirement. We then hope to receive further approval to offer our Teens & Toddlers program as a separate health elective. In other news, we have once again revamped our website, and we have gone mobile! Check it out at: m.children-ourinvestment.org For the next year we are looking into sustainability options, and further expand our Teens & Toddlers program into new locations.
