JEMfriends recognizes that foster care does not give most youth the resources necessary to function well as an adult in society. JEMfriends’ life skills classes provide expert input and personalized advice for each of our youth as they work toward accomplishing their program plans and eventually toward responsible independence. Classes include these topics and others:
- Resume writing and building
- Budgeting and money management
- Health and nutrition
- Social skills development
These classes are open only to youth in the JEMfriends Transition Program. If you are interested in teaching a particular life skills class please feel out a volunteer application form here, indicating your specific area of interest.
