(Walhalla, SC)———————————A new program for pregnant and parenting teens in Oconee County will be promoted and discussed at a September invitation only event in Walhalla.
The Joseph F. Sullivan Center at Clemson University is launching a program called CU Succeed, which is being funded by Children’s Trust of South Carolina and the South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, along with other statewide organizations.
An event and luncheon by invitation only will be held on Friday September 12th from 11:30am until 12:30pm at the Walhalla Depot at 211 South College Street to celebrate the launch of the CU Succeed program.
The CU succeed program will work with local organizations to encourage pregnant and parenting teens to stay in school, delay the next pregnancy, improve parenting skills, and become better connected to supportive resources.
