Impact US supports youth that are currently in the foster care system by providing weekly support groups along with education, group discussion and opportunities for incentive-based extracurricular activities.
No one ever said being a teenager was easy. But for youth coming of age in the foster system, young adulthood brings its own unique set of challenges to overcome.
The Impact US program provides educational services, life skills training and general health education including:
- Sexual and reproductive health education
- Money management
- Independent living skills
- Mental health wellness
Impact US uses a support group/psycho-educational group-like setting, which meets weekly over a six-month period for two hours each week.
