Description

Metamorphosis is the second program offered by Blessings, Inc. The program is designed for teens (16-17) that are currently in the foster care system or have been identified as atrisk. Studies show that many foster and at-risk youth are unprepared for the responsibilities that they will assume once they reach adulthood. Many have no experience in completing a job application, going on a job interview, opening a bank account, securing housing, managing healthcare, etc. This causes significant challenges as they transition into adulthood. Metamorphosis provides a series of workshops that are designed to meet the needs of the teens by teaching these much-needed life skills. The workshops are held on Saturdays and each workshop is broken down into four Saturday sessions. We are looking for individuals that are either interested in joining our planning team or assisting with the workshops. If you are looking for a way to use your talents and knowledge to help teens overcome the many challenges that they face, then this is the project for you. If you are interested, please contact our volunteer coordinator at 215.298.4326 or via email at coordinator@blessingsincyouth.org. We cannot wait to partner with you in this exciting new venture!
