Preparing Youth for Adulthood (PYA) Program is designed to prepare our young people in our foster care programs, ages 14 to 20, for the transition from foster care to self-sufficiency.
Specialized activities in this program include:
Whether they would like to explore higher education or pursue vocational training, our dedicated staff identifies each individual’s unique talents and sets them on a path to achieve their goals. CMCS provides ongoing support for our young adults even after they have aged out of the foster care system. Our PYA Program remains a cornerstone component of our programming offered for children in foster care, supported by our belief that empowerment, education and employment are the key components to a successful life.
In addition, CMCS has established an alumnae group which has become a trusted and valuable resource to our agency. This group of former youth in foster care have gone on to be successful adults within the community and have become mentors for the current children and youth of CMCS
