Lauren Singer is the Youth Policy Coordinator at the Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy. Lauren joined the Alliance in 2012 as a Young Parent Policy Fellow. In April, 2015 Lauren became the Youth Policy Coordinator. Lauren works in partnership with the Public Policy Director and is responsible for overseeing the Young Parent Policy Fellows (YPPF) program. Furthering the organization’s commitment to youth partnership and advocating for better expectant and parenting youth policies across MA, Lauren also creates a safe space for young people to bridge their lived experience with the organization, and the structures and policies that impact their families and communities. Lauren does this work because she wants to help expectant and parenting youth know they can achieve their dreams and goals, regardless of being young parents. Lauren is pursuing a nursing career and hopes to be a nurse or doctor who works with young parents.
