Tools for Success

JLSD has partnered with Just in Time, a local organization that provides programming to help transitioning foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well being, to facilitate monthly workshops focusing on leadership development with a group of 16-24 year old current or former foster youth.

Tools for Success works with the LEAP Council, a groups of Just in Time youth that wish to develop their skills in leadership, advocacy, and community involvement. The program serves several purposes simultaneously: connect JLSD membership with transition-age foster youth, provide the youth with leadership development, and provide JLSD with valuable action-based research to use as it continues to develop its programming.
