FLY Outreach Team
What is the FLY Outreach Team?
The FLY outreach team engages motivated young people between the ages of 18-24 who are aging out of the foster care system in New Jersey.
How do I participate in the program?
The FLY Outreach Program leverages technology to reach and serve aged-out foster youth throughout New Jersey so anyone with a phone, laptop, or tablet can join.
You must be between 18-24 years old, have been involved with DCP&P, and interested in continuing your education.
How long is the program?
The program utilizes the Critical Time Intervention (CTI) model and is designed to be 6 months long and is broken into three phases:
PHASE 1: The first month of the program will consist of weekly meetings where the client and case manager will brainstorm and develop goals, gather vital documents, and begin the process of educational applications.
PHASE 2: The next three months will consist of meetings every other week, working on the goals and getting connected to various support systems and community resources in their area of choice.
PHASE 3: The final two months will consist of one meeting per month to allow the client to navigate their support network independently. The Case Manager will still be there and will help see how the support network is functioning. Should any additional supports be needed we will set them up so that our young person is as successful as possible.
What makes this program different?
The FLY Outreach Program is both unique and special in that it is specifically tailored to each individual client: YOUR GOALS, YOUR NEEDS, AND YOUR CHOICES ARE THE BASIS FOR YOUR PLAN, AND YOURS ONLY!
We can also adapt this program for current College and University students that are interested in additional Case Management services!
