The Teen and Young Parent Program (TYPP) is one of two nonprofits that has been awarded a $500 grant from Oceanside High School’s Jobs for Maine’s Graduates (JMG) program. TYPP was invited to apply for the grant so Adrienne Randall, Community Education Assistant, completed the grant and then made a special visit to the JMG classroom at Oceanside East and shared with students what TYPP is about. The money will be used to purchase books for a project known as Books for Home Visits (BHV).

The Teen and Young Parent Program is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the community since 1989 with a mission to support young parents and their children through the involvement of caring volunteers, mentors and home visiting parent education.
