Just in Time for Foster Youth functions as an extended family for transitioning foster youth by providing much needed gap services to support them on their path to self-sufficiency.
There is an opportunity to get connected helping a foster youth as a College Bound Coach. Every year, the college bound program provides resources and connections to youth beginning their college journey. They are currently recruiting for Coaches! The role of the College Bound Coach is to help support a young person in their college journey. Along with attending two event days with the youth in June, our hope is that you will also be a resource for the youth as they begin their college experience.
The dates to save for being a College Bound Coach are:
Coach Orientation on June 2nd 6:00-7:30pm: This is where we review what the event days will look like, expectation for Coaches, and offer discussion with prior participants)
Event Day 1 on June 6th 9:30am-2:00pm: This is the first event day, centered on mingling/networking activities with all College Bound youth participants. Coaches are then paired with a youth based on established connections and best fit.
Event Day 2 on June 20th 9:30am-3:00pm: This is the second event day, centered on educational workshops, followed by helping a youth shop for college supplies(paid for and facilitated by Just in Time).
