Empowering youth with experience in foster care to successfully transition into adulthood.
Aging UP provides three pillar services to Sacramento Region youth (ages 13-17) who have any experience in foster care. Services include: one-to-one mentoring, positive recreation, and independent living skills education.
Aging UP recruits, screens, and trains adult volunteers in strength-based, trauma-informed mentoring. We then match youth to mentor and provide support as they build a one-to-one relationship.
To further help youth establish self-sufficiency, Aging UP works with experts to arrange UPshops - free independent living skills classes. Matches attend these fun, hands-on workshops with topics covering financial literacy, resume and interview skills, college and career development, healthy living, cooking, and so much more.
