16 and Pregnant

MTV's long-running series 16 and Pregnant takes a hard look at a tough issue: teen pregnancy. Each episode follows a teen girl for five to seven months of her life as she navigates the bumpy terrain of dating, breaking up, prom, school, jobs, and everything else you deal with as a teen; all while dealing with being pregnant. Each story offers a unique look into the wide variety of challenges pregnant teens face: marriage, adoption, religion, gossip, finances, rumors, graduating high school, getting (or losing) a job. Faced with incredibly adult decisions, these girls must figure out how to take care of their new families while also trying to live their teen years to the fullest. 

We've been a part of the 16 and Pregnant world from the begining, providing advice and support—as well as some great discussion guides and resources—to the show. If you have any questions about our involvement, send us an email! (Keep in mind: we don't have anything to do with casting the show; that is all on MTV—if you're interested in appearing on 16 and Pregnant please reach out directly to MTV casting.)
