    Do you have any connections or a 12-week course for Utah foster youth? We need some!

      Our co-founder Sam Bracken lives in Utah and often collaborates with the Dept. of Human Services there. He has done some special coaching classes for large groups of kids, but we don't have the infrastructure yet to provide our 12-week course in Utah. In Georgia we've made it work by partnering with other nonprofits, DHS and universities/colleges to get after-school TANF funding as well as matching funds from individuals, corporations and foundations. Our goal is to expand our program nationwide.

        Thanks for the reply. How could I help Sam with coaching classes through DCFS or nonprofits to provide a class. I have connections with UVU, am a family educator, and I am a foster parent. If there is anything I can do to help please pass on my name. I have followed the Orange Duffel Bag foundation and find it to be a good solution for at-risk-kids.
