Who is APIN?
The Adolescent Parent Interagency Network (APIN) is a group of agencies, individuals, and professionals in Manitoba who collaborate with the goal of supporting best practice for services provided to teens who are pregnant and teens who have children, whether or not they are primary caregivers. APIN is committed to promoting the health and wellness of young people and their families by subscribing to shared objectives and guiding principles. APIN activities and events are coordinated by a volunteer steering committee of 10 to 16 members from diverse professional settings.
