All Earn and Learn stipends are distributed to participants on upon successful program completion. 

attendance policy

Our attendance policy allows for up to 1 excused  absence for our Mentoring and Leadership Programs, and up to 2 excused absences for our Life Skills Training Program.  We understand that emergencies happen and students may need to be excused from class. We ask that students communicate any anticipated absence with our program staff and make arrangements to make up any missed work. Girls who miss the maximum number of program sessions allowable may be removed from the program and/or forfeit part or all of the allotted program stipend.
