Launchpad for Adulthood – Program Impact

AFEC began enrolling Care Leavers (CLs) into the Launchpad for Adulthood Aftercare program in June 2019, with a heavy emphasis on data collection and metrics to continually assess effectiveness of program and identify areas for improvement.

COVID-19 Update

The youth in our program have been severely impacted by the pandemic. Most of the educational institutions have been shut down. Those who have jobs have not received paychecks since April 2020. We are providing additional financial support for housing and essentials as required. We have also provided CLs with smartphones and upgraded Internet connectivity. They are enrolled in financial literacy, digital literacy, and conversational English courses to utilize this downtime productively. English instruction is provided via Enguru, a spoken English app that is interactive and offers personalized instruction based on student levels in different industry domains such as hospitality and retail.
