Adolescent Family Life Program (AFLP) is a strengths-based case management program designed to support and empower expectant and parenting youth. The program emphasizes building resilience to help youth thrive during and after they exit the program. Case managers meet one-on-one with youth to establish a caring relationship, identify the youth’s needs and interests, and offer support with accessing services, setting goals and planning for the future. The California Department of Public Health, Maternal Child and Adolescent Health Division developed a youth-centered, strength-based approach for the program called the AFLP Positive Youth Development (PYD) Model. This approach recognizes that all youth have strengths, benefit from high expectations and supportive relationships, and are able to make meaningful contributions to their lives, families and communities. The AFLP PYD Model turns these values into activities so youth develop and use their strengths and skills to help navigate life’s challenges, build healthy and supportive connections, and identify and work toward personal goals. All of this leads to healthier, happier lives for youth and their children.
