Being a mom is hard, and being a teenage mom is even harder. Most teen moms will drop out and not continue further with their careers. “By age 30, only 1.5 percent of women who had pregnancies as a teenager have a college degree”(“Teen Pregnancy Statistics”). Nowadays, schools like Santa Ana College can help these young mothers attain a profession and raise their kids at the same time. Now thanks to colleges like SAC, that percentage can increase, and young mothers can strive to better themselves.

In our postcard for Santa Ana College, we use the strategy of support to attract teen moms.
