St Petersburg, FL.
Currently Provided by Firmly Established
Firmly Established Inc. currently provides:
*Free Family Case Management, Youth Empowerment Seminars,
Community and Employment Referrals in St Petersburg, FL
Our Youth Seminars empower youth by promoting entrepreneurial endeavors based on the child's creative interest. Youth are provided with valuable information towards financial planning and career competency. We provide wrap-around case management to friends and family members who are involved with the child's care.
We accomplish this through creative group seminars and support system building. Our services are available to youth who live in households that fall below the federal poverty level within Pinellas County. We network with local youth groups and organizations. We link families to community resources that will impact their lives in relation to their stated self-sufficiency goals. Youth are given recreational and household resources based on a family assessment.
We are currently self-funded. We seek funding in order to secure venues for seminars, provide materials for seminars, develop opportunities for hands on entrepreneurial training, cover transportation costs and the cost of recreational activities.
Request information on our Work Funds Rewards Program.

Funding Wish List
Our Vision for fully funded Youth Services:
Is that girls and guys entering into High School will engage in our seminars and mentorship activities; which promote good self esteem, healthy socialization, goal setting, career and college planning.
Our organization seeks to accomplish these goals through interactive groups, teen conferences, and group outings. These experiences will teach the girls about life outside of their school and home environments, link them to mentors and information in relation to their interests; thereby, increasing their self esteem and likelihood for personal and professional success.
We are currently seeking funding. With additional funding, groups can be held on a consistent basis, seminar materials can be purchased and larger locations can be secured to accommodate more teens. We are seeking angel funding and other capacity builiding grant opportunities. We also welcome contact from businesses and private sponsors who believe in reaching children at an early age to produce responsible self-sufficient adults.

Low income clients in need of childcare would receive childcare, case management, referrals, and free extended childcare to work on self-sufficiency goals on-site. Please send us an Interest Letter if you are offering funding or other contributions towards this endeavor. Within the letter we will outline our implementation and marketing plan.
