If you believe it takes a village to raise a child, you're just the right person to help guide teenage parents during a resource and workshop event Friday in Sacramento.
Pregnant teens and youth with children will be paired with an adult "buddy" at the Baby City event so the teens can take advantage of the opportunities and resources presented, according to an e-mail from Rick Fowler, president of The Community College Foundation.
The event, which is sponsored by the foundation, Kaiser Permanente and Northern California Community Benefit Programs, is focused on teen parents with children ages birth to 5 years old.
Parents are encouraged to bring their children with them.
The event includes breakfast and lunch, resources such as Cal Works, Head Start and Medi-Cal, information on immunizations, workshops on custody issues and teen finances and a Mommy and Me reading room.
Baby City will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Sacramento County Probation Department's field office at 5445 Laurel Hills Dr., Sacramento.
Registration and breakfast will be held from 9 to 9:30 a.m.
A volunteer orientation will be held at 8:30 a.m. Friday, said Kim Bradley, program director for the foundation's human development and youth services.
Adults interested in volunteering should e-mail Kim Bradley or call her at (916) 418-5154.
