The New York City Parent Empowerment Program (PEP) offers family-friendly supports to help young parents reach their employment and education goals.

The program supports 50 vulnerable young parents ages 17 to 24 and their children with services that address the education, employment, and developmental needs of both parents and children.  PEP provides guaranteed childcare; high school equivalency preparation; work readiness and occupational skills training (including paid work experiences); supportive services; and parenting support.

With this program, New York City will participate in a national learning community to test the idea that providing stable, high-quality child-care and related support to young parents will remove obstacles that impede their economic success and stability.

If you would like to participate in this program and are:

  • Between 17-24 years old
  • Out of school and not currently employed
  • Parent of a young child
  • Living in NYC
