The Right Way Foundation

Category

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.
