The mission of the Pregnancy, Education, and Parenting (PEP) Program is to enable school-age parents, through education, to become self-sufficient, responsible, job-oriented citizens.  The Program’s goal is to reduce the number of students who drop out of school due to pregnancy and/or parenthood and to recover young parents who are 21 years old or younger to the educational system.

  • Individual counseling, peer counseling, and self-help Programs
  • Career counseling and job-readiness training
  • Child care for the students’ children at a child care facility in close proximity to the home or campus
  • Transportation for children of students to and from the campus or child care facility
  • Transportation for students, as appropriate, to and from the campus or child care facility

  • Assistance to students in the program in obtaining available services from government agencies or community service organizations, including prenatal and postnatal health and nutrition programs
