College Bound Sisters is the name of the program that is trying to keep 12- to 18-year-old girls from getting pregnant. Participants in the program attend 90-minute meetings weekly. They are taught about abstinence and contraceptives.
Each week that they do not get pregnant $7 dollars is deposited in a bank account. The money can only be collected when they enroll in college.
The cost of paying teens not to get pregnant is minuscule compared to the $9 billion teen pregnancy costs annually.
