CREATE Your Future

CREATE Your Future (CYF) is a life-skills program for young people transitioning from out-of-home care. As a youth program targeted at young people aged 15 to 25, CREATE Your Future provides valuable skills and knowledge to effectively transition from care into adulthood. Our CYF program includes workshops for young people, a grant scheme, a licencing program, and a website. The resources are designed to help all children with out-of-home care experience – whether coming from kinship care, foster care or residential care. 

CREATE Your Future Workshops

If you’ve ever asked yourself “How do I adult?”, then CREATE Your Future is the workshop for you. CREATE Your Future workshops are a series of holistic life-skills based workshops teaching young people basic skills such as effective communication, critical thinking, informed and responsible decision making, self-awareness, and interpersonal relationship skills. 

The workshops also enable young people to competently enter a highly competitive job market, manage their finances, and maintain their health. These skills enhance young people’s ability for flexible and positive behaviour that helps them to live independently. 

Learning “how to adult” is tough for all young people, but these workshops take young people with out-of-home care experience through basic processes step-by-step, to support them through their transition from care to a better independent future.
