Future for KIDS Offers the Only Trauma Informed, Social Emotional Learning Program for Youth in Arizona.
Phoenix, Arizona is very well known for some of the most multicultural and multilingual communities. The diversity in our community accounts for many unique backgrounds, and youth who have experienced 3 or more Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s). Future for KIDS provides a resilient foundation for safe and positive learning. Our goal is to enhance youth’s ability to prosper in school, careers, and in life.
Our program consists of STEAM learning, which includes the implementation of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics, ethics, sports, and nutrition, along with a community service model. We intentionally serve the student’s needs by meeting them where they are, in mind, body, and spirit to secure their futures.Discover Your Future provides youth the opportunity to interact with mentors, to build healthy relationships. Youth with ACE’s are most likely to develop trauma and toxic stress. Our mission is to help the youth develop the skills to overcome ACE’s: Self- Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Building Skills.
