NewsRadio KOGO and fellow iHeartMedia San Diego stations are pleased to announced that Just In Time For Foster Youth is the recipient of our Share The Good San Diego award for April.
Just In Time (JIT) serves transitioning foster youth in the greater San Diego area. California has the largest number of foster youth in the country and, in San Diego alone, over 300 youth leave the system annually.
JIT envisions a future in which every youth leaving the foster care system has a community of caring adults waiting for them after 18. We believe consistent,long-term help from the heart is the foundation for the success of our youth so they can thrive and enjoy productive, satisfying lives.
JIT accomplishes its mission through services that build youth capacity to acquire stable housing, financial security, essential education, meaningful employment, reliable transportation, increased well being, and a consistent community of support. This includes:
- Basic Needs/Healthy Prac6ces/My First Home
- Financial Fitness/Pathways to Financial Power
- College Bound/Master Your Dream
- Career Horizons for Young Women/Bridges to Success for Young Men
- Changing Lanes/LEAP Ambassadors
