Lunch Provided For Participants

BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Local attorney and respected community advocate Kendall Moore will lead a workshop on the importance of one’s legal and civic responsibilities with a group of young adults who have recently moved on from traditional foster care.

The event will be from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23 at Kay’s Bar-B-Q in Cocoa and is open to young people ages 18 to 23 who have recently transitioned from foster care, and 17-year-olds currently in foster care.

The workshop is part of a monthly series coordinated by Transitions, a community-based program focused on improving the long-term quality of life for young adults in Brevard County who have exited foster care and are entering adulthood.

Titled “Knowing My Legal and Civic Responsibilities as a Young Adult,” the workshop will provide information related to common contracts, including the significance of signing a legal document, the need for appropriate identification, identity theft issues, registering to vote, and the importance of addressing legal and financial issues as soon as possible, rather than ignoring them. Career options in the legal profession also will be discussed.
