Feb. 19: Youth mentoring program
The YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County February Brown Bag Lunch will feature Adams County Children and Youth Services’ mentoring program, Project Hope.
Program Coordinator Tessa Adams, M.Ed. will discuss how Project Hope provides lifelong connections for youth in out of home placement and involved in the child welfare system as well as those who age out of the foster care system.
“By assisting youth with various independent living and social skills and providing ongoing support, it increases the likelihood these youth will have a successful transition to adulthood; thus, decreasing the likelihood these youth will become a cost to our community,” Adams said.
Project Hope strives to match current and former foster youth ages 13 to 21 and others involved in a child serving system with a positive, caring adult in the community to coach them in daily living activities, be a listening ear, introduce them to new opportunities, empower them to make responsible decisions, and spend time pursuing activities of shared interest.
Attendees may bring their lunch or order from the Ragged Edge II, located inside of the YWCA. For more information, contact Nany Lilley at email@example.com or 717-334-9171, ext. 115.
The YWCA is located at 909 Fairfield Road, Gettysburg.
