A new initiative is helping teenage mums go back to school and stay off welfare.
Mission Australia's Aim'n High program is assisting dozens of young mums to complete their education.
However, the program is in trouble.
Unless it can boost numbers, government funding will be cut and young mums will have to fend for themselves.
For more information about the program call Youth Connections on 1800 335 106 or visit the Aim'n High website
