Program Description:

The Young Student Parent Program at the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College in Minnesota offers a range of concrete and social supports to student parents between the ages of 18-25. The community college partners with the Carlton County public health nurses and the Fond du Lac Reservation public health nurses. Student parents who join the program can receive academic advising, access to special workshops and presentations, free tutoring services, nutrition education, financial counseling, parenting and parent/child classes, free health screenings and immunizations, connections and referrals to on-campus and off-campus services and activities. The program activities, one-on-one sessions with the coordinator, public health nurse home visits, tutoring sessions, and involvement in student activities earn students points for rewards such as gas cards, grocery cards, bookstore gift certificates, and Wal-Mart gift cards.
