Older Youth

Support for Older Youth

For teenagers in foster care, the path to adulthood is not always straightforward. Without a traditional support system or family, these young people face a host of challenges. At The Villages, we recognize that older youth need the same love, stability, and support as young children, yet also have unique needs for their age group.

That includes helping them prepare for college, apply for jobs, find housing, and manage money. It also means connecting them with the resources they need to develop a solid foundation for adulthood, and teaching them the skills they need to maintain independence.

There are ways that you can help, too. To learn more about how you can foster or support older youth at The Villages, contact us today.
