Transition Age Foster Youth Mentorship Program

Junior League of San Diego matches highly committed JLSD members with transition age foster youth on a 1:1 ratio. Group events are also held with all mentor/mentee teams, and individual connections and relationships are formed between mentors and mentees to assist TAY with their transition to independent adult life.

Welcome to the 2016-2017 Junior League of San Diego Mentorship Application. In order to assist and empower San Diego’s transition age foster youth, the Junior League is providing a mentorship program that will offer fun and relevant independent living skills workshops, job-obtaining assistance, and lots of great social opportunities! We are looking forward to mentoring transition age foster youth interested in assistance advancing their education and careers while having a lot of fun!

The Mentorship Program Will Provide:

  • Comprehensive mentor/mentee matching process based on common interests and career goals.
  • Commitment of two one-on-one meetings per month, weekly communication,  plus additional mentor/mentee group activities.
  • Fun, interactive independent living skills workshops on topics such as budgeting, nutrition, budget-conscious cooking, and modern etiquette for the 21st-century young adult.
  • Job-hunting/resume-building/career-planning workshops culminating in a salon “Day of Beauty” to learn how to style for success!
  • Reasonable transportation for mentee as-needed for appointments, grocery shopping, and other important meetings.
