PARTNERS IN CHANGE

Today's Change Creates a Successful Tomorrow

Partners in Change is the heart of Fountain of Youth’s mission to reverse generational poverty. It’s a comprehensive program designed to empower individuals to develop the skills and knowledge they need to transform their lives. The program is structured into three phases, each lasting 60 days, and includes weekly one-on-one meetings with mentors who provide personalized support and guidance.
At the core of our program are seven different development goals that we help participants focus on:
What sets our program apart is its customization to meet each individual’s unique needs. We understand that no two personal journeys are the same, and we meet participants where they are in life. We connect them to the community resources they need to achieve their goals, including job training programs, housing support, and healthcare services.
The best part? Our program is completely free to participants. The only requirement is the desire and readiness to change. Our funding goes directly toward program costs to provide access and opportunity to those who need it most.

REAL TALK

A Weekly Support Group

Change can be a daunting task, and often we tend to underestimate the time and effort required to bring about change. However, change is an essential aspect of leading a better life, and that requires stepping out of one’s comfort zone. Participants who enroll in programs such as Real Talk, offered by the Fountain of Youth, are eager to make a change in their lives. Although the process of change can be discouraging, Real Talk provides the necessary guidance and support to help participants understand that it is possible to make the changes needed to improve their situation.
The primary objective of Real Talk, a weekly support group, is to oer participants the tools and resources they need to find restoration, healing, and prosperity through self-discovery. During the sessions, a new topic is introduced, and the group engages in an open discussion to encourage participants to express their thoughts and learn from each other’s insights
COMMUNITY IN CHANGE

Uniting for Collective Empowerment

Our Community in Change program offers humane education on diversity, equity, and inclusion through local experienced facilitators. The goal is to challenge Community in Change participants to better understand what it’s like to live in generational poverty and the barriers that prevent a change in mindset. By walking in step with Partners in Change participants, Community in Change aims to address topics such as knowledge of self and others, citizenship, and education to raise awareness of societal and generational poverty barriers.
The program consists of four weekly individual sessions, each two hours long, based on availability. The sessions include a reflection journal, and participants have additional opportunities to become allies to those in poverty. Community in Change aims to change not only the mindset of those living in poverty but also the entire community’s mindset to bring about lasting change. The sessions will use videos, journaling, and group discussions to facilitate meaningful conversations.
