San Joaquin County pregnant and/or parenting teen.
Adolescent Family Life Program (AFLP) provides intensive case management and home visiting to pregnant and/or parenting teens. The focus is on providing nutritional, medical, educational and psychosocial services, including referrals. The AFLP Positive Youth Development Program (PYD) introduces the teen parent to a strengths based approach. A life planning intervention includes a life planning tool called My Life Plan (MLP). The MLP is an interactive, client centered, strength based tool in which the clients work on life planning modules with the support and guidance of their case managers. It is designed to help clients create a plan, based on their own strengths and values, and set personal goals to improve their well-being, and that of their child/children.
Cal-Learn is a statewide program for CalWORKs recipients to help pregnant and parenting teens (females and males) complete high school, become independent and form healthy families. Teens will meet with a case manager who will help in developing a plan to finish high school or earn a GED. If not currently attending school, a case manager will assist the teen in returning to school or find the right school to meet the teen’s needs. The Cal-Learn program may help pay for child care while attending school. Cal-Learn rewards good school performance with cash bonuses. Case managers may provide referrals to other agencies that can help.
