Pregnant & Parenting Teens (Cal-Learn)

Pregnant & Parenting Teens (Cal-Learn)

The Cal-Learn program is designed to help teen parents. Case managers assist and support the teen with challenges they face as a teen parent by developing a plan with the teen to finish high school or earn a GED. Supportive services include child care expenses, school expenses, transportation expenses, diaper expenses, and referrals for additional services. Teens with satisfactory progress in earning a high school diploma or GED may also be eligible for bonus dash payments.
To Qualify for Cal-Learn you must:

  • Live in the same household as your child
  • Be under 19 years of age
  • Not yet have a high school diploma or GED
  • Not be in foster care

The goal of Cal-Learn is to help teens graduate from high school, become independent, and form healthy families.
