Former foster youth fathers and men find camaraderie and support in Ready for Life's Wingmen Group

The Ready for Life Wingmen Group, a support group for fathers and young men who have exited foster care, held their most recent event at the end of January at Xtreme Fun Center playing laser tag! 

RFL Youth Specialist Nate Johnson, who leads the Wingmen Group, said of the afternoon, “We played two good-natured games of laser tag as well as the arcade games. There was a lot of fellowship among the guys, and it was great to have a chance to connect on a deeper level. I can't wait for the next Wingmen event!" 

 All reports from the young men who attended proved that the guys had a great time!


"My favorite thing to do today was the laser tag (obviously!) and it was also great to see everyone that was there. In the future I would like to do some Go Carts next time," said attendee and Wingmen member Alexander Jansen.


Andrew Singletary noted, "What I liked most about today's Wingmen event was how everyone was very social and vibing together. We had a lot of interesting conversations, and also the pizza was good too. I had a lot of fun today!"


"The event was fun and active, and being able to just hang out with a bunch of fellow individuals that enjoy games and pizza was great. The best part of the event was running around like kids again and just having fun," said young adult Jax.


If you are interested in volunteering with the Wingmen Group, we are looking for male mentors to give these extraordinary young men a chance to learn from you as well as from one another. Please contact our Director of Youth Programs, Jake Ray, at
