Building confidence and leadership skills for boys and girls in the Broward County foster care system.
What is garage 22?
Garage 22 is organized as a 501(C)(3) organization providing an accepting space that develops a loving culture for foster and at risk boys and girls in Broward County. Our services include access to mentorship, workshops, clothing, sports gear, fieldtrips and afterschool wellness programs so that they can successfully and independently enter adulthood.
This brick and mortar venue is open one day a week and welcomes teenage boys and girls from foster care programs across Broward County. We provide access to support programs giving them a place to find and celebrate their voice and power, learn a variety of life and job skills, and work with mentors to build their self confidence and leadership, as they develop into community minded citizens.
Who are we?
We are a group of committed leaders creating a transformational experience for these underserved kids, engaging thousands in the community and impacting thousands more with a powerful legacy that will live on for decades.
So now what?
With your support, over 1,000 at risk boys in the foster care system will visit Garage 22 in our first year.
Our Programs & Services
Garage 22 empowers boys in the Broward County foster care system by providing a wide array of programming that goes far beyond services readily available. Much work is under way to help ensure that at-risk boys in the Broward County foster care system have the support, skills, and resources to successfully transition to adulthood, including:
Mentorship & Workshops
Weekly workshop programming centered on topics of interest to the development of our youth including a safe space for advice, help or simply a listening ear. By contributing to their wellbeing and personal growth, we can inspire these young individuals to take action in their own lives.
Garage 22 Store
Participants “shop” for free in our store stocked with quality items that reflect current trends, brands and fashions combining clothing; shoes, accessories, and sports gear along with the basics every kid deserves.
Inspired by the idea that art, music and creativity can transform a child, we work with partners, volunteers and passionate people in South Florida to create unique art experiences for those who visit Garage 22.
