Foster Care and Adoption
For prospective mentors who have completed orientation, this is the required training to become a mentor with our UP4Youth program.
Our UP4Youth program offers structure, support, and guidance in creating short- and long-term goals with youth and young adults to help them achieve self-determination and self-sufficiency. The ultimate goal of the program is to help youth build the personal life skills necessary for a successful transition to adulthood, employment, and a lifelong network of peers and mentors to help them along the way.
If you have yet to attend an orientation, please review our calendar for upcoming dates.
Please contact the program manager, Isaac Casas, at i[email protected] or 213-365-2900 for more information or to RSVP.
