Life Skills Seminar for Victor to attend while at Camp To Belong
Posted May 11, 2020
Victor is starting to think about life after foster care, and is also concerned about how his siblings will find their way in the world. He has been asking his social worker and foster family to be connected to a sibling he's separated from, as well as access to support services and a peer community so that they can start thinking about life after foster care. This wish will fund his participation in a Life Skills Seminar alongside his siblings during a summer camp that will also include plenty of summer camp FUN. Life Skills Seminar will bring in alumni foster care from around the state, provide all supplies needed, and leave Victor with ideas and resources that he can access anytime after camp. Victor really would like to be with his siblings more often, which is not always possible due to foster care, this seminar would bring them together while also allowing them to bond over a vast array of different and fun things! This program is still planned in Maine, and is actually even more important as visits and most programming for youth in and out of foster care in Maine were suspended due to COVID-19 logistics.
