| May 1, 2022 | 0 Comments

Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT), a nonprofit organization dedicated to engaging a caring community to help transition age foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being, will be hosting Empower party celebrations through the end of June for its dedicated community of supporters. JIT has scheduled a series of small, outdoor events hosted by sponsors as well as a series of virtual Zoom parties. Each will offer an intimate setting to engage in the JIT mission while raising awareness and resources for transition age foster youth in San Diego County.

The theme for this year’s events is Empower State of Mind: The Past, Present, and Promise. Each Empower party will include a program featuring an inspirational youth story and a Spoken Word presentation by former and current JIT participants as well as a moving video highlighting JIT’s lasting impact. The JIT youth will be an integral part of each party by sharing their personal experiences and engaging with guests.

“Our Empower Party experience allows us to share the very best of our unique JIT community with some of our most committed and generous supporters.” says Don Wells, chief empowerment officer at Just in Time for Foster Youth. “They’ve continued to invest in our mission in extraordinary ways during these uncertain times and we’re eager to connect with them once again to say thank you, as we prepare for JIT’s 20th Anniversary Celebration.”

This year’s Presenting Sponsors include Capital Growth Inc., Gretchen & Bill Morgan, RWM Home Loans, The John M. Sachs Family, Louarn & Alan Sorkin, Tina & David Thomas and US Bank. Gold sponsors are Grace Chui-Miller, Jeanette Day, Marty Goodman, Joe Jordan, MG Properties, Robin & Larry Rusinko, Mark Schmidt, Solana Beach Presbyterian Church Home Ministry, Ellen & Bob Svatos, Sharon & David Wax, Diane Cox & Don Wells, Julie & Dale Yahnke.
