About this event

We would like to invite all foster and homeless youth (14- 22) in the Gulf Coast area to join us for a day of learning, engagement, and fun!

Youth will have an opportunity to learn more about agencies and community organizations who can provide them with support. They will also participate in engaging workshops and a virtual reality experience!!!

Our mission: To help ensure that foster and homeless youth within our region have the knowledge and tools to become successful, independent adults.

Community stakeholders who serve foster and homeless youth are encouraged to bring their youth groups!
