Looking for a way to volunteer from the comfort of your home? Help us congratulate our LifeSet young adults graduating from high school and college by sending them a celebratory card! Our LifeSet participants are young adults transitioning from Foster Care to adulthood so graduating - and receiving a card from you – is a big deal!
How do you get involved? It's simple...
1) Register for the event to receive an email with the name of one of our graduates along with if they are graduating from high school or college.
2) Pull out your craft supplies or purchase a card from the store and write an encouraging message.
3) Mail the card to our Shelby Oaks office! Address the card to Youth Villages, Attn Avery Duncan, 5515 Shelby Oaks Drive, Memphis, TN 38134. Please write the name of the graduate on the envelope seal. This will help us distribute the cards to the correct graduate! From there, our LifeSet Specialists will personally deliver the cards to our graduates.
Want to do more? Share this opportunity on your social media and ask your friends and family to get involved! It has been a long, hard year, and we could all use an opportunity to spread encouraging words!
What is LifeSet? Youth Villages provides young adults transitioning from foster care to adulthood comprehensive support by matching young adults with a LifeSet Specialist. This specialist meets with the young adult weekly and supports them 24/7 through text, emails, and phone calls. Specialists help the young adult with everything from building healthy relationships, financial planning, obtaining housing, education, and employment. LifeSet truly is an individualized, evidence-informed community-based program that is filling a critical gap in services for foster care youth.
