The Young Parents Program (YPP) provides a variety of services to pregnant and parenting out-of-school young people, aged 14-24, who have not achieved a high school diploma or its equivalent or who have a high school credential and are seeking to enroll in post-secondary education or training on a pathway to employment. Services include training in basic education, High School Equivalency Test (HiSET/GED) preparation, English for Speakers of Other Languages, parenting and life skills, career and college readiness, financial literacy, and goal setting. While economic independence and security is the ultimate goal of the program, short term objectives include increased grade or MELT levels, achievement of a high school equivalency credential, re-enrollment/graduation from high school, or enrollment in college or post-secondary training leading to an industry, state, or nationally recognized certification in a field with demonstrated hiring demand. Extensive support services augment the program.
