We encourage young people to talk to their social workers before they join our My First Place program to ensure they are making the right choice for their goals and needs. Please read on for information that can help you when having discussions with clients about First Place for Youth and other options.
What youth should know about First Place for Youth:
First Place for Youth is an innovative and entrepreneurial non-profit organization that is growing rapidly. Our programs proactively challenge the trends among former foster youth by building self-esteem and self-reliance, and forging the skills necessary for successful independent living.
We are always on the look out for dedicated, mission driven professionals to join our team. To learn more about working at First Place and to browse current employment opportunities, visit our careers page at FirstPlaceforYouth.org
At First Place for Youth, we envision a future where the disparities between foster youth and their peers have been eliminated. But we also know that making this a reality is too big a job for any one organization.
We have evidence that the My First Place program is effective in helping young people create brighter, more successful futures for themselves. Now, we are actively seeking to partner with other organizations interested in implementing the MFP model in their local communities.
