Thank you for coming to show! Below are opportunities to volunteer with transitional age foster youth!

The Right Ways .png

The Right Way Foundation

The RightWay Foundation works with current or emancipated foster youth to move from a point of pain and disappointment to a point of power, productivity, and self-sufficiency. Without confronting their past trauma in a healthy way, it is difficult for our youth to hold a job, support their families, or have a rewarding future. Therapy and counseling are a major part of the employment model at The RightWay Foundation. They are laced within the initial ‘Operation Emancipation’ job training services and are continued in one-on-one and group settings for program participants.

We have a signature co-mentoring program providing a community of mentors and peers to support the young adults as they age out of the foster care system. Our co-mentor community meets each month on the 1st Saturday of every month. Smaller groups of mentors and one on one mentoring takes place between 1st Saturday events. We support the young adults with connection to resources – including housing, employment, education as well as connecting them to a variety of people who will support and encourage them to set and achieve their goals! Feel free to contact us at beth@steppingforwardla.org.

Alliance For Children’s Rights

The Alliance for Children’s Rights provides a vital bridge for young adults as they strive for self-sufficiency.

What do we do?

Young people exiting the foster care or delinquency systems in Los Angeles often face severe challenges in education, employment, and overall well-being. The Alliance works to remove barriers to self-sufficiency, promote self-advocacy, and build a foundation for the future for youth who lack other support systems.
