The Right Way Foundation
Operation Emancipation is RightWay Foundation’s revolutionary, flagship employment and life-preparedness program for foster youth transitioning to adulthood. It is a 6-part initiative to help current and emancipated foster youth gain financial independence and make a safe, comfortable transition into self-sufficiency when they exit the foster care system. It is revolutionary in the way in which it couples mental health services with job readiness and financial literacy training, and in the inspirational leadership of its facilitators. Program elements include: One-on-One Therapy; Healthy Relationships; Job Hunting and Work Readiness; “Not Just a Job”; Financial Literacy; “Foster Kids Do Make It.” RightWay provides access to customized career and academic counseling for its foster youth. Depending on the specific need, assistance will be given to help foster youth enroll in and manage financial assistance for G.E.D. preparation, ESL, high school, occupational and vocational training, community college, or a four-year college. Additionally, opportunities for interviews, recruitment events and professional networking are also available.
Current and former foster youth, ages 18-25.
