16.1.1  Program Goal and Requirements

The goal of Learnfare is to help children fulfill their potential in life by providing programs and opportunities that will enable them to attend and complete school, obtain employment, and break the cycle of welfare dependency.  The Learnfare requirement to be enrolled in school is balanced by the provision of case management, especially for at-risk children, to address barriers, maintain school enrollment, and improve attendance and achievement.

Learnfare has two program requirements:

1.             School Enrollment.  Children in W-2 Groups are required to be enrolled in school.

2.             Mandatory Case Management.  Members of certain target groups are required to participate in case management. (See 16.3.1)
