Based in the Sobrato Center for Nonprofits in Milpitas, Teen Success, Inc. is making a tremendous impact in our community.

Not only is it empowering young moms to graduate from high school, but it’s breaking down the stigma associated with teen motherhood, while also helping to lift families out of poverty.

In our country, only 38% of teen moms graduate from high school. However, Teen Success, Inc. has a 93% graduation rate among teen moms who take their program.

In Episode 2 of our new podcast, The Bay Area Beat, we interviewed Diana Heinrich, the Communications and Marketing Manager for Teen Success, Inc, along with Sofia Jaquez, a young mom whose life has been transformed by completing the program and graduating from high school.

You can listen to their inspiring story below…
