Each year 20,000 foster youth will age out of foster care. Facing instant adulthood, thousands of foster youth must independently find housing, employment, feed and clothe themselves, with little to no support, often without a high school diploma, job experience, or a place to live. With odds stacked against their success, Ticket to Dream’s Take Flight program works with nonprofit partners and donors across the country to arm foster youth with support programs and resources that help them graduate, learn valuable life and job skills, obtain access to technology, have support systems, and access to safe housing. This Social Impact campaign Created by OnBuzz Media and Ticket to Dream for AJ Edward's award-winning movie Friday’s Child, aims to shine a spotlight and inspire action to improve the futures of foster youth aging out of care.
This event is hosted by local non-profit CHOICES, Inc. who is a partner with Ticket to Dream Foundation. CHOICES independent living program serves this vulnerable population in Southwest Ohio. We are excited to bring the issue of aging out of foster care to the forefront of discussion as part of the Take Flight movement across the US.
