YOUNG PARENTS, WE GOT THIS!

Becoming a parent at a young age comes with many challenges. Finishing high school doesn’t have to be one of them. Our safe, judgment-free program can provide needed support and services in one place so you can stay in school . When you stay in school and earn a high school diploma and learn valuable job skills you will earn $10,000 more per year than if you do not have a high school education.

SCHOOL

 A high school diploma, combined with the career skills you’ll learn at Cardinal, can help you earn $10,000 more per year than if you do not have a high school education. We’ll work with you to develop a flexible, customized learning plan that works with your parenting schedule.

CAREER + COLLEGE

We see your potential — we won’t let you give up on it. High school graduation is just the beginning. Cardinal’s team will help you explore career and college options, and give you hands-on career experience, so you can find a path forward you’re excited about.
