Foster Youth Employment Services


Are you a motivated foster youth who is ready to gain skills and employment for an independent adult life?

Our Foster Youth Employment Services include coaching, mentoring, training, internships, and job placement training for former foster youth. The services are customized to your specific needs. If it’s advanced education or trade skills training you need, PRIDE’s foster youth coaches will connect you with community resources to assist you in reaching your goals.

PRIDE’s network of employers – from small community businesses to large corporations like Amazon – are ready to hire PRIDE-assessed employees who have spent time in foster care. We have everything from part-time roles to full-time, permanent employment with benefits.
