The Education Leading to Employment and Career Training (ELECT) Fatherhood Initiative helps young people to raise healthy children and become better parents. The program teaches skills that lead to success in school and economic self-sufficiency. Teens receive assistance in obtaining their high school diplomas or GEDs.
At the same time, they learn effective parenting skills and are encouraged to become more responsible adults and better informed parents.
