Annual Independent City Event a Success

Earlier this month, AVUHSD hosted its annual Independent City event where foster youth are able to prepare for adulthood and emancipation.

Earlier this month, AVUHSD hosted its annual Independent City event where foster youth are able to prepare for adulthood and emancipation. The students are placed in a simulated city environment where they adopt a persona and conduct personal business at locations such as a bank, county office or DMV. They also are asked to make purchases such as buying a car. At the end of the event, our students are better positioned to become independent and enter adulthood. The students also heard from a motivating speaker and had a chance to win hundreds of dollars in prizes including gift cards and a laptop. We would like to thank all the staff, volunteers, and local organizations for making this event possible. We also thank our students for participating and investing in their futures!
