About this Class
Each year in Colorado, more than 500 youth “age out” of the foster care system. These youth enter adulthood without any sort of permanent connection—no childhood home to go to for Thanksgiving dinner, no one to go to for advice before a job interview, no one to call when they’re having a bad day … no support system at all.
The CHOICE program intervenes before these youth “age out” of the system, by creating broader connections between youth and adults outside of the traditional adoption route. The program is built on the premise that once you make a connection with a foster youth, you will be compelled to help in a more permanent way and help him or her transition into adulthood.
