We are adapting a successful Life Skills Empowerment Program (LSEP) to suit the needs of homeless youth in NYC. The program will assist youth participants in the process of recovery from traumas associated with major life crisis, to help them rebuild their lives through the strengthening of essential life skills and the sharing of life stories in the context of a supportive community. We will pilot this program starting at the end of May for 11 weeks. During this time, youth participants will also work one-on-one with mentors on setting personal goals and will be supported through case management and advocacy.
This fundraiser will benefit homeless youth through St John Lutheran Church, which has been very supportive and accommodating to our program.
A $5 donation will pay for transportation to and from group for a session.
A $10 donation will allow a youth to eat a community-shared meal.
A $20 donation will help with materials for our group sessions.
A $50 donation will pay for transportation to and from group for ALL youth participants to a session.
A $100 donation will feed ALL youth participants for one of our sessions.
We appreciate any amount, big or small. Every little bit helps.
Thanks so much for taking the time to learn about our program and for your support!
