JLSD Hosts Community Partners Breakfast

On January 15th Junior League members gathered with Community Partners at the Girl Scouts Headquarters to enjoy breakfast and discuss the needs and issues facing Transitioning Age Foster Youth. Community Council Director Elect and Community Partners Chairperson, Emily Green, facilitated the discussion with the assistance of table leaders Dominique Coulon, Rachel Ganiere, sustainer Ann Hill, Tamara Neu, Katie Phay,Chloe Reithermann and Lara Silver. Community Partners expressed concern over housing and transportation needs, financial literacy, basic life skills such as cooking nutritious meals, and understanding extended foster care legislation, AB-12. Equipped with this insight, the Community Council can strategically plan programs and Impact shifts that address these needs to assist San Diego’s TAY community. Many attendees will be further sharing their expertise and insight at April’s Solutions Summit.
