Adolescent Family Life Program (AFLP) addresses the social, health, educational and economic challenges of adolescent pregnancy by providing comprehensive case management services to expectant and parenting teens and their children. The program emphasizes building upon an adolescent’s strengths and resources. Case managers work closely with youth to improve the health and well-being of themselves and their children.  The California Department of Public Health, Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health Division has developed an affirming and prevention-based approach to the program called Positive Youth Development (PYD). This approach to working with adolescents aims to develop their resilience by strengthening their developmental assets. Through PYD, young people become empowered to pursue life goals. Youth are provided with ongoing support and opportunities to develop the resilience and skills that will help them thrive during and after they exit the program.
