When a child is too old to remain in the foster care system, Aspiranet’s Transitional Aged Youth (TAY) program in San Bernardino County takes over. Because of the lack of consistency in many foster kids’ lives, they’re often lacking key skills that will allow them to thrive as an adult. Aspiranet’s TAY program helps former foster kids make the transition from care to independence.
Aspiranet’s TAY program provides all the necessities required for a young adult to start their independent life. TAY youth are provided with a furnished apartment, including a bed, furniture and everything else needed to make a house a home. Through ongoing classes, they receive employment and education assistance, help with resume building and a clear direction on where their path will lead. In California, roughly 3% of foster youth attend college. Aspiranet’s TAY program addresses these educational deficiencies by helping foster youth complete high school and prepare to enter college.
Single tickets to this exciting fundraising event are $75, with a table sponsorship starting at $500. For more information or to buy tickets, visit www.aspiranet.org/casinonight or call Jennifer Chapa at 909.272.1347.
