The Transitions program is geared towards foster, adopted, guardianship and kinship older youth who in their senior year of high school. The program is designed to help youth complete high school, improve life skills, and pursue milestones with the help of a one-on-one mentor. The program makes for a successful transition into adulthood.
The Youth Speak Out Team is a specialized CMFCAA program for older youth. The youth on the team travel statewide and nationwide, learning how to effectively tell their story, advocate for change, speak on panels and work directly with legislators. Typically the youth on the team have worked with CMFCAA in the past through the Transitions Program or other older youth services.
The Cooking Class is an expanded program for our Transitions students. The cooking class provides on-site learning through community mentors in the area of kitchen safety, food preparedness, storage, food born illnesses, cooking processes, tipping and food etiquette. We are also looking for volunteers to teach on specific topics, such as: canning, herbs, baking, and much more. Please fill out a volunteer form if you are interested in helping.
