Our persistent coaching model provides high school and college foster youth continuous mentor support, education planning, tutoring, career exploration and an unconditional commitment to help them define and achieve their life dreams! Pivotal scholars are 10x more likely to graduate from college, compared to only 3% of foster youth nationally.
Pivotal is an innovative social enterprise that helps youth acquire the skills, habits and work experience to fulfill their potential. They have placed 150 youth in paid job internships and over $414,000 was earned by local foster youth! Training, preparation, and employment are critical supports for youth in foster care because by age 24, the only former foster youth who are consistently employed, earning wages near the national average, are those that had a job while in the foster care system."
