Daybreak Ministries

Did you know that Daybreak offers a free after-school club for teen & tween girls right in your own backyard? Our “No Apologies, No Regrets” clubs for girls are now active in 17 different locations in Richland, Lexington, & Saluda counties, and the impact these groups are making on our community is immeasurable. 

After School Programs for Teen Girls

Why an after-school club for girls? Though teen pregnancy rates in the United States have dropped within the past decade, the teen birth rate in the U.S. is still higher than any other developed nation. A recent study has found that youth who do not spend time in extracurricular activities after school are 37% more likely to become teen parents than are youth who spend time in after-school programs, and that the most common time for youth to engage in high-risk behaviors (such as sexual activity) is in the hours between 3:00-6:00pm. After-school programs help prevent teen pregnancy by encouraging healthy decision-making, and providing youth with real health education and positive role models. Because we at Daybreak were seeing far too many pregnant girls in the 12-17 age bracket, we knew that something needed to be done long before these girls needed a pregnancy test. “No Apologies, No Regrets” is our answer to this local crisis.

Daybreak Ministries was founded by a group of concerned citizens, moved by the Roe vs. Wade decision of January 22, 1973 which legalized abortion. In November of 1983, this group of concerned citizens which represented several area evangelical churches, realized that it was not enough to simply say abortion was wrong. They knew that real help needed to be offered during this time of crisis. Setting out to accomplish this goal, Daybreak Ministries, a crisis pregnancy center, was formed.
