A Family For Every Child is proud to offer the Mentor Assisted Life Skills Program to help support mentors and mentees in our Mentor Program. The mission of this branch is to support youth educationally through providing them with the life skills they need in order to live as successful adults.
What is Mentor Assisted Life Skills Training?
We pair mentors with youth who will work on developing life skills together. Mentors and mentees will be offered a curriculum that includes information on how to handle one's finances, healthcare, cooking, and more. This program will better prepare children who are at risk of "aging out" of foster care and living on their own. These classes in conjunction with the mentors' support will aid in the success of each child becoming a self sufficient adult!
These fun and informative classes are held on a monthly basis, and we hope to increase that number soon. These classes are not only learning opportunities, but they’re opportunities for foster youth to meet their peers.
