I am the Director of a Dallas Area 501C3. It is called About A Mile Youth Service Association. Target audience of foster youth age 13 and up. Goals by TEAM to establish self directed projects in which youth (with their assigned mentor) execute.
We have chartered in 2016 as entirely to support Foster youth. We are boys and girls (high percent female) with Venturing at its core, but go far beyond this. Venture Scouting is a goals oriented program in which the youth work in small like minded teams and establish projects to meet their team goals. They then with their adult mentor execute on said projects as a team.
Like all scouting there are full crew outings as well but far less "scouting structure", more individual needs orientation.
1) No charge to Foster family (grant and donation based). Respite Care in Dallas are available.
2) 3 year grant in process to train the team project managers in Project management professional methodology and become trade certified as a (PMP) project Manager and attain internship at age 18
See attached information; call or write with any interest.
