How You Can Help

Teach a class

Life-skills classes help foster-youth gain the competence they need to thrive outside the foster system. These could be classes on cooking, finance, interviewing for jobs, etc.

Don't worry if you aren't an experienced teacher. Anyone can do it! We'll provide the classroom and help with any needed supplies. You just need to facilitate and make it fun :)
