A Club for Transition Aged Youth
Life Launch is Finally Family Homes’ weekly transitional youth program to help connect and educate former foster youth. Free food, prizes, and hot topics from professional speakers make Life Launch a fun way to build connections while learning essential life skills.
What’s happens at Life Launch?
Life Launch “blasted off” October 24th, 2019 and was being hosted at a church in Valencia, California. Every week started with a healthy, tasty dinner followed by life skills training from a professional.
We have since opened up another location in partnership with LA Mission College’s Guardian Scholars Program. We are in talks to open yet another location in Santa Clarita.
While Life Launch centers on helping youth build strategic skills, education, and resilience, we also recognize the importance of getting connected to a safe community. So each week, some time will be allotted to discuss the topic in groups as well as to socialize informally in order to foster social connections.
And to top it all off, we’ll have regular give-aways, relevant to the topic of the week, so the youth can practice what they’ve learned and because getting free stuff is fun!
For those interested, our fall lineup is already booked up! Here’s a sampling of the topics and speakers we have scheduled for our transitional youth program.
