Mission Statement

TeenForce helps foster youth become self-sufficient young adults by connecting them with jobs and career mentors. Our unique social enterprise is self-sustaining and allows businesses to address this critical social issue in the normal course of their workforce development.

Mentors are needed to help our youth as they transition to working adulthood. The mentor can be critical to helping understand appropriate workplace behavior, professional development opportunities and being someone who cares.

Description

Here’s a typical candidate:

Ella is 20. Her goal is to work in health care, possibly as a nurse. She needs support and guidance on how to get from "here to there". With a good mentor, Ella can earn the certification, and gain a much better job before her housing subsidy runs out. Without it, she will probably be struggling with housing and transportation and still working for minimum wage in a year.

So, the question is, do you have time to help make a difference in someone’s life? It only takes a few hours every week and your gift of time and life experience could make all the difference to a foster youth.

The information above can be found on the official website of TeenForce. For more details about the organization and to find out how you can volunteer, please visit their website http://www.teenforce.org/Career_Mentors.html
