Transitioning to Adulthood

Many young adults feel unprepared to take on the responsibilities of adulthood. Making decisions about education, employment and health are difficult for any young person and having sickle cell disease can further complicate those decisions. Preparing for their new role as an independent adult is essential to their growth and success during this transition phase. Young adults need the proper tools and support to help them set and achieve their goals.

CSCF Kids provides a Young Adult Transition program that offers tools and education to aid in the development of our young adults. Our month-long program offers weekly sessions that focus on several areas of skills including social, education, employment, financial literacy, health and wellness, self and life skills.

Through activity filled sessions, guest speakers and field trips, the Young Adult Transition program exposes participants to real world settings that will prepare them for a thriving future.
