Turning Points for Children

LifeSet helps Jamyra achieve her goals

Jamyra was on her way to becoming just another negative statistic — a former foster child who failed to become an independent adult. But, just when the young woman needed help most, Turning Points for Children partnered with Youth Villages to bring LifeSet to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.


A Fighting Chance at Success

Life can knock you down sometimes. That’s what happened to Scott. His parents disappeared. He had goals but lacked the skills to reach them. LifeSet changes that. He graduated high school and a job at a gym where he pursues his love of boxing and a career as a personal trainer.

By partnering with public agencies and private providers, Youth Villages creates effective, research-based interventions for youth and families. We seek to improve the lives of others by training on specific service models, scaling best practices, pursuing innovation, informing policy and giving a voice to those we serve.
