• We empower foster teens and give them tools to become leaders.

THERE’S A PROBLEM.

Foster teens are some of the most vulnerable members of our society. Left to fend for themselves at age 18, foster teens emancipate out of the government system with little to no advantage.When teens age out of the foster care system, they’re left with nowhere else to go consequently becoming some of society’s most forgotten, abused, and marginalized members. Homelessness, incarceration, and human trafficking are just some of the negative outcomes pervading this emancipation crisis.

BUT NOTHING IS BEYOND RECLAIMING.

HERE’S OUR SOLUTION.

More than ever we need to be proactive, refusing to accept the label life and society has stamped on these teens, and instead offer them a different label… one of “leader.” We believe that every broken story  is a leader in the making. Together, we can better prepare and equip these leaders for the courage it will take them to transition out of foster care and into society as an adult. Here’s how:
