Cooking With Judiece!

Join our Northern IL youth consultant Judiece Oliphant in the kitchen!  We know adulting is hard, but treating yourself to healthy delicious meals doesn't have to be.  She's sharing simple and satisfying recipes that you can whip up in no time.  At the end of each episode, she also shares helpful life tips she's learned along the way after she aged out of foster care.  

Dream Chasers & $ Makers

Take a deep dive into some interesting career paths and learn skills to help you along YOUR path!  We often talk about success after leaving foster care.  We constantly work to give you the skills you need to live a life of successful independence after aging out. 

What do we mean when we say, "successful?"  It simply means that we want you to live YOUR best life!  A life where every day is not a struggle.  We want you to enjoy the life you live and thrive.  In this original IL series, we want to help you figure out what that means for YOU.  A huge part of living a life you love, is having a career you are excited about.  Chase your dreams, find out where your special gifts, talents and interests can take you in the future.

You don't have to have all of the answers right now, but we hope the tips we share and the interviews with people who have found their purpose and turned it into a meaningful career gets you to think about the possibilities for your bright future long before you age out of care.  

Remember to reach out to the Independent Living team when you have any questions about career planning.  Also, your Fostering Hope and ETV mentors are available to answer your questions about college planning and vouchers for trade programs and certifications!
