Through Life Launch, we are investing in the lives of at-risk young adults ages 16-24. Our staff and volunteers support them “wherever they are” and encourage them on their journey to independence and self-sufficiency.

After a training period, a team of volunteers meet with a young adult from hard places or a youth “aging out of foster care” at least twice a month. Volunteers initially focus on getting to know their young friend. Then, the team begins to help the youth vocalize his or her goals and chart a path to achieving them. Our community connections mean that volunteers never give hand-outs, instead, with a healthy and trusting relationship as a base, they connect youth to the resources they need to give themselves a hand up.

Our goal for each of our Life Launch young adults is to see them move toward healthy independence with the support of positive, healthy, stable relationships.
