About

The Unlimited Potential Program is a program developed by Voices for Children, Inc. to empower current and former foster youth ages 16 and older to reach their full potential through education, individualized support, and integration with community members and community resources. Every year, 30,000 kids age out of the foster care system in America. Of these 30,000: 20% will end up homeless after 18;25% will be incarcerated within two years of aging out and almost 40% will end up relying on the public welfare system (Source: Together We Rise and Partnerships for Children.) You can help these youth make the transition out of the foster care system and into adulthood. Join us by becoming an UP Mentor and learn how you can empower a youth on his or her pathway to self-sufficiency. You must be 25 years old to beome a mentor.
