Empower a Bright Future: Support Vulnerable Youth
Imagine a world where every young soul can unleash their true potential?
- The journey to adulthood is commonly characterized by a period of boundless freedom and self-discovery. However numerous young people are deprived of their “adolescent entitlement,” burdened by poverty, traumatic experiences, discrimination and mental health challenges. The Dollar Detectives Society’s (TDD) Life Prep Mentorship Program rewrites the story for vulnerable youth. Delivered in collaboration with our partners, Life Prep offers youth a head start through mentorship, community experiences and skill building. Our hands-on program provides practical experiences in an inclusive and engaging setting, unlocking youth’s true potential!Life Prep levels the playing field through quality programming. Firstly, we take youth on a journey to discover their purpose and talents for the world. Then through storytelling, we build financial resiliency by teaching money management, safe banking and asset building. We continue our adventures by embarking on a grocery shopping field trip, cooking a nutritious meal and enjoying conversations with one another while we eat together. Every youth takes home a self-care kit including affirmation cards, a personalized gift, munchies and takeaway resources for home. Youth are free to laugh, have fun and develop friendships while building life skills.
