When foster youth age out of the foster-care system, they often have not been taught useful culinary skills or healthful living habits. Educate Tomorrow pairs 15–23-year-olds who are transitioning out of foster care with mentors who help them with educational, social, and personal guidance and support.
As part of the organization's overall goals to bolster these youths' life skills, young people in the mentoring program can attend a daylong event hosted by Playing the Game of Life. Throughout the day, young people participate in a series of healthful-living sessions incorporating cooking lessons, yoga classes, guided meditation, nutritional education, and stress-reduction techniques. Playing the Game of Life's professional instructors use holistic teaching methods to demonstrate and encourage healthful-living habits to participants, and, ideally, will spark ongoing conversations between the youths and their mentors about healthful-living and healthful-eating habits. Mentors will also attend the event, but will cover their own costs.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Educate Tomorrow teach healthy eating and living habits to young people transitioning out of foster care. If G-Team members raise $500, then Educate Tomorrow can send 20 youths to an all-day event of healthful-living sessions, including cooking lessons and nutritional education. Each additional $50 raised will be used to send two more foster youths to the event.
