Step up, Step out
Hope For Youth wants to ensure that all of our youth have the tools and resources they need in order to be successful. Hope For Youth’s Step up, Step out program helps to ensure youth aging out of foster care are offered mentorships, career preparation, and ongoing support services once leaving the structure of Hope For Youth.
The program also seeks to increase the number of alumni who attend college and remain connected with Hope For Youth long-term. Hope For Youth does this by partnering with generous community donors as well as foundations to be able to provide funds for things used toward the expenses that youth in our programs have related to college or vocational school such as transportation expenses, SAT’s, college apps, suits for interviews, etc. Hope For Youth also provides professional coaching to our youth. Hope For Youth pairs youth with those in the youth’s field of interest to help them experience the working world.
