This conference is for adolescent parents who participate in the Parent Linking Program (PLP) from 8 high schools throughout the state. These programs help to assist young parents in keeping their commitment to completing high school, as well as learning to fulfill their important roles as parents. Our goal is to empower and educate the participants to continue on the path to success.

This year’s theme is “PLP’s Carnival Extravaganza!” The conference is funded by the New Jersey Department of Children and Families and hosted by Prevent Child Abuse New Jersey. 

Please note, that this event is open to active participants in the Parent Linking Program only.
