This program supports youth leaving the foster care and group home system and youth in transition from their family home. The program connects youth to adult mentors and offers support with education, employment, housing, finances, mental health, community connections, workshops and provides resources and opportunities to learn valuable life skills in a safe, supportive, and positive environment.
This position involves working with youth exiting the foster care and group home system, supporting staff, screening and training volunteers, conducting program evaluation, reporting to funding agencies, developing and ensuring the program is consistent with the strategic framework of the organization and remains high impact and efficient.

The candidate will have up-to-date knowledge of relevant community support resources and create effective working relationships with key partners to promote a responsive and supportive approach.
