Recognitions

2nd Annual Foster and Homeless Youth Prom

When: May (date TBD) 7:00pm - Midnight

Where: Hamline University Anderson Hall

Why:

Lucina has been in foster care for seven years and through her journey has noticed many disparities between youth in foster care and those who are not. One things that she wants to change is for youth in foster care to have a 'regular' teen experience. So she decided to create a prom night specifically for youth in foster care and homeless youth. In 2013 she organized her first prom which was hosted at Plymouth Covenant Church and was attended by 35 youth. She did not do this alone, she pulled together a youth planning committee that was comprised of ALL youth who were in foster care. Since this was such a huge success Lucina is now planning the 2nd Annual Prom.

Due to her dynamic personality and passion for raising awareness around issues facing youth in foster care, Lucina has develop another component to the planning process. This year the youth committee will have mentors who are college students.  The purpose is for the high school youth to have mentors leading them down the track to post-secondary after they graduate from high school

How can you help?

Lucina is looking for the following:

  • Event day volunteers to help with decorations, set-up, check-in, chaperones, and clean up
  • Caterer to donate or company to sponsor dinner and refreshements for the evening
  • DJ who will donate their time for a GREAT cause
  • Sponsors to help cover the cost of the event. Sponsors can come in at any level starting at $150
  • Donation of gift bags and gift bag items for each youth attending (100)
