*HELLO EVERYONE- DUE TO THE COVID 19 (CORONAVIRUS) DIRECTIVES AND IN ORDER TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE, WE ARE CANCELLING in person ILSP WORKSHOPS. Visit the link below for online workshops*
“Our vision is to move every youth from stagnation to motivation;
from limitations to possibilities;
from dependency to self-sufficiency;
from the past to the future.”
You’re growing up.
You’re reaching out.
You’re stretching to the limits.
You’re making your own sense out of life. And the Contra Costa County Independent Living Skills Program is here to help you every step along the way.
Growing up in foster care presents some unique challenges. There are many corners and pages for you to turn. You have some rights and some responsibilities, and we’ll help you sort through both. Getting ready for emancipation can be work, but there’s also a lot of fun to be had.
We’ll take you on campus tours. We’ll help you apply for financial aid and scholarships.
Ready to roll up your sleeves and go to work? We’ll help you with resumes and practice job interviews with you. We’re here ready to offer advice, if you ask.
We’ll help you find an apartment and a roommate. We’re here with resources, ideas and even a shoulder if you ever need one.
Come make new friends. Discover more about what’s waiting for you in the real world. Along the way, you’ll meet a lot of wonderful people—people you can count on…everyday.
