Supportive Services is another pillar Students for Life of America specializes in – but for us, it’s under an initiative called Standing With You (formerly known as Pregnant on Campus). This program is all about making sure that young women are empowered to embrace both their children and their education. This can be done using displays, speakers, tabling, flyering, and other outreach.
The primary goal of Supportive Services is to make students aware of pregnancy resources & support so that student mothers don’t feel like they need to choose. As such, it’s a good idea to be well-versed in Title IX facts (which deals with the legal rights of pregnant students) and talk to your SFLA Regional Coordinator ([yourstate]@studentsforlife.org) about how to do successful supportive outreach.
