Foster Care and Adoption
The Unlimited Possibilities for Youth (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. Through an individualized, youth-driven approach to case management, 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 are a current or former foster youth between the ages of 16 and 26 and would like to learn more about how UP4Youth can help you, join us for orientation! If you are interested in mentoring youth and young adults, being a part of their life journey and helping them to succeed, join us for orientation! There, you will learn about the youth we serve, what indirect and direct services we provide, the steps to enroll into the program as a participant or mentor, and the important role of the mentors.
