ROAD TO INDEPENDENCE - Don't Fear Your Future!
Saturday, November 1, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California

Casa Pacifica’s Coaching Independence in Transitional Youth (CITY) program will be hosting its Road to Independence, a “mock city” event for transitional age youth ages 14-18 years, in the Casa Pacifica gymnasium on Saturday, November 1, 2014 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
With so many youth leaving systems of support to be on their own early in life, it is essential to provide a point of reference, a fundamental understanding of what to expect from life once they begin their journey out on their own. The Road to Independence accesses the professional skills and expertise of community members to directly teach young disadvantaged foster youth practical lessons about what it takes to be successful in life. The event features eighteen booths where youth practice life skills – booths such as a courthouse, apartment rentals, grocery store, survival station, bank, credit counseling, educational options, employment, health care, social services, transitional housing, transportation, utilities, electric company, gas company, and telephone company. Replicating real life experiences to familiarize them with detailed and specific personal management requirements ensure youth are better prepared to transition to adulthood. Your support by becoming a sponsor of the Road to Independence will ensure these youth are provided with a great experience and a better understanding of what to expect once they leave structured care to live independently. If you would like to volunteer for the Road to Independence, please or contact Lisa Sparrow at (805) 366-4019 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support of our valuable youth.
