Growing Up and Out

Youth Motto coming soon….

Hey! We’re Growing Up and Out … a diverse group from 7 different counties– Chesterfield, Florence, Lee, Marlboro, Dillon, Marion, and Williamsburg! We meet on the second Saturday of every month and talk about lots of different topics: growing up, moving out, financial aid, jobs, careers, relationships, health care, school, getting out of the system, how to better our lives, our plans after foster care, video games, how much fun we like to have, who we live with, how to build skills, activities and crafts, and social groups!

Some of the great things about our group are everyone is nice, we are all unique in our own way, we get along with each other, we help each other in times of need, we communicate, we have manners, we are all friends, we believe in saving the Earth and peace, we plan on graduating from high school, everyone has good grades, we are helpful, respectful, caring, and supportive!

Our group functions well because we are informed, determined, self-motivated, have goals, communicate well, listen to each other, ask questions, work as a team, treat each other the way we want to be treated, and have good social skills.

If you’d like to join our group, you are more than welcome….we all smile in the same language!
