Love. Sex. Relationships. As a teen, you deal with some pretty serious stuff! Choices about dating and relationships that you make as a teenager have the potential to change the course of your life. You want to do it right.
Our Positive Choices program will educate and empower you to make good decisions about your relationships and sexuality. We’ll provide the space and the opportunity for you to talk and hopefully learn about some options you may have never considered.
We know it pays off to make positive choices, and we’ll provide support for you as you navigate your own choices. And we’re not afraid to talk about the tough stuff. Sex. Love. Broken hearts. Self worth. If you’re dealing with it, we’ll talk about it.

Our parenting classes and mentoring program are designed to help new moms and dads tackle the world’s most challenging yet rewarding job!
Smart Choices begins with a series of small group classes that cover essential topics like nutrition, first aid, and baby-proofing the home. The second phase of Smart Choices involves meeting with a mentor one-on-one to continue learning the ins and outs of parenthood. Lessons cover topics such as pregnancy, child development, stress management, discipline, and budgeting.
Our group parenting classes are currently being offered virtually (via Zoom), so you can participate without having to leave your home! Call/Text 607-205-8506 to register.
*All classes are evidence-based and are recognized by Broome County Family Court*
Participants in our Smart Choices program earn points that can be spent in our Baby Store, which is stocked with new and nearly new items such as high chairs, strollers, cribs, baby clothes, toys, diapers, wipes, and many other necessities.
