Summary

This project will support current and former foster youth, at-risk, and low-income youth in Southern California with school supplies, backpacks, duffel bags, and hygienic needs. When foster youth exit their foster/group home, they are oftentimes given a trash bag with their belongings. These duffel bags send the message to youth that they and their belongings are important and valued.

Challenge

The transition for youth from high school to college is difficult, but for youth who are transitioning from foster care to college, it is substantially harder. They must learn to navigate a world they do not understand and with very few resources available to them. Sadly, they do not have anyone or anything to fall back on, monetarily or financially. Similar conditions are apparent for at-risk youth. The need for collaboration with regard to former foster youth and at-risk youth is undeniable.

Solution

We exist to help young people excel in their personal, professional, and educational endeavors. If these students have the proper resources and support available to them, they will succeed in school and increase access to better paying jobs, advancement within the workplace, and sustainable housing.

Long-Term Impact

Education is the foundation upon which a youth's future is built. By investing in educational avenues for our nation's most vulnerable youth, we are able to create professional and personal development pathways that can change the course of their futures.
