THE MISSION

Every year, hundreds of young people leave a System they were placed in because of circumstances beyond their control, too often feeling unsure, unprepared, and disconnected. Is it any wonder that outcomes have been discouraging for youth leaving foster care after 18 without the benefit of an extended family? A crisis like the coronavirus pandemic creates even greater inequities for foster youth who are experiencing anxiety and isolation brought on by disruptions in education, loss of employment and income, and significant food and housing insecurities.

Your sponsorship EMPOWERS over 800 young people in San Diego, ages 18-26, with the safety net, resources, and relationships that every young adult needs to survive and thrive. This includes emergency basic needs (e.g. food and rent), setting up one’s first apartment, education, employment, transportation, mental health, and all the building blocks essential to become Confident, Capable, and Connected.

WALK THE TALK DETAILS 

Just in Time for Foster Youth will host our 8th annual signature celebration and fundraiser, Walk the Talk, in a new and innovative way where everyone will feel safe, inspired, and empowered. Each EmPower party will accommodate 8 guests and 2 JIT participants, in either a virtual format, or live at the home of your choice, or at a Cohn Restaurant.

The focus of these festivities will be to connect and engage members of our community to our mission and the young men and women that we serve. At the same time, we plan to have lots of fun and raise lots of money!

EmPower Party options: Any evening March 26 – May 30, 2021, 7:00pm-8:30pm
Virtual Finale for ALL: Saturday, June 12, 2021, 7:00pm – 8:00pm

 

SKY DECK INVITATIONS*

Walk the Talk sponsorships will also include invitations to the Grand Opening of the extraordinary new SKY DECK at the Del Mar Highlands Town Center, currently scheduled for Wednesday, May 26, 2021, which will be an exclusive evening of food, cocktails, and entertainment, as well as a benefit for Just in Time for Foster Youth and Junior Achievement of San Diego County.

*Sky Deck Grand Opening will definitely take place but may be rescheduled if circumstances require
