About Adolescent Parent Interagency Network

The Adolescent Parent Interagency Network (APIN) is a group of agencies, professionals and peers in Manitoba who collaborate with the goal of ensuring high-quality service to young people who are pregnant or parenting, whether or not they are primary caregivers. Members of APIN have linked together because of their shared commitment to the challenges and opportunities facing these youth. APIN activities and events are coordinated by a volunteer steering committee of 10 to 16 members from diverse professional settings.


APIN holds many annual events for adolescents/young parents and service providers throughout the year.
