Resilience Rising – Alumnae Mentoring

In 2020, Resilience Rising launched its alumnae mentoring program for youth exiting the residential program. Research shows that havingĀ one trusted adult improves the outcomes for youth in and aging out of the foster care system. Resilience Rising’sĀ mentoring program aims to maintain established rapport between youth and trusted adults, enhance youth capacity for independent living skills, and ultimately reduce statistical outcomes of aging out, namely school drop out rates and recidivism of homelessness and incarceration.
