Who Can Get Involved
In My Shoes is always looking to extend our community, whether you are a youth, alumnus, an ally or you know someone who is, we need your help to be able to sustain the services we provide to young people in foster care and in our community.
Opportunities to Get Involved
Opportunities for Youth
Youth in our program can self refer; however, they must ultimately have approval from their guardian before they can participate.
There are four main opportunities a youth can be referred to participate in; our One-On-One Mentoring Program, Group Mentoring Program, Events, and/or Advisory Board. Although our events are part of our programs we offer youth, typically our events are by invitation only. However, if you would like to participate on a committee or would like to participate in one of our events, you may contact us directly for more information.
Each of the youth opportunities have their own referral form. To participate in an activity, we must have the correct form on file.
