PRIDE Advanced and Specialized Training: Preparing Youth for Successful Adulthood
This Foster PRIDE Module provides caregivers with the knowledge and skills necessary to assist youth with their healthy transition into adulthood.
This four-session module approaches the topic of transitioning in a different way than most training programs. In part, it is focused on the development of life skills in youth such as getting a job, going to school, and learning how to cook. Typically, the focus in child welfare has been on these types of life skills. But it is known that life skills arenít enough. Youth also need strong and lasting relationships with caring adults. This training looks at an integrated model that focuses on the importance of stable, consistent, and healthy relationships in helping youth learn life skills and, in turn, transition effectively into adulthood.
In an integrated model, relationships and life skill development go hand in hand, and this theme is put into practice throughout the entire training.
