Cal Learn Program
As a strategy for reducing teen pregnancy rates and long-term welfare dependency, the Cal-Learn program helps pregnant and parenting teens under the age of 19 to attend and graduate from high school or its equivalent. The program consists of three coordinated services designed to help teens become self-sufficient adults and responsible parents:
  • Intensive case management assists teen parents to obtain education, health and social services.
  • Payments for necessary child care, transportation and educational expenses enable pregnant/parenting teens to attend school.
  • Bonuses and sanctions encourage school attendance and good grades. Four $100 bonuses/sanctions per year may be earned/applied based on report card results, plus a one-time $500 bonus for graduating or attaining an equivalent high school diploma.
