Paying teen girls not to get pregnant:
A buck-a-day — that’s the incentive being offered to young girls to keep them from getting pregnant.
The group College-Bound Sisters was founded at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro by Hazel Brown, a maternity nurse who thought too many teens were having babies.
Brown said she hopes the program, which pays $1 each day to 12-to-18-year-old girls, will keep them from getting pregnant. In addition to remaining pregnancy-free, the girls must also attend weekly meetings.
So, does it work?
Smith said nearly 100 percent of the girls who finish the program have gone on to graduate college.
If a girl drops out or gets pregnant, her money is divided among the other girls still in the program.
