Unlimited Potential Mentoring Program

The Unlimited Potential Program is a mentoring program developed by Voices for Children, Inc. to empower current and former foster youth ages 16 to 25 to reach their full potential through education, individualized support, and integration with community members and community resources.

There are several components of UP that make it work so well:

  • Social Events: Fun events that expose you to new opportunities and provide the opportunity to have fun and connect with each other.
  • Monthly Get-Togethers: Free meals with other mentees and mentors. These get-togethers can range from game nights to movie discussions to hearing a short presentation on a pertinent topic.
  • Individualized Mentoring: You will be matched with a mentor based on connections built at UP events. After being matched, we ask that you spend time with your mentor at least twice a month up to a year - though more time is welcomed, too.

Why would you want to do UP?
  • You will have a committed, positive adult mentor who is committed to spending time with you.
  • You will have the opportunity to connect with other young adults who have the common thread of an experience in foster care.
  • You will have FUN! We love spending time together doing fun things - from fun social events like airplane day, to a relay marathon, or a game night.
  • UP is a bridge to other community resources that are beneficial for you.
  • You will have the resume-building leadership and service opportunities to give back to the community.
