Hire Tomorrow’s Leaders
RTS partners with high-performing, dynamic companies to provide access and opportunities to our scholars, many of whom are now in the top schools in the country. They are eager to enter the workforce as confident, career-ready and self-directed adults.
With your help, they can.
We partner with universities to make sure our scholars have the support they need to succeed throughout their time in school. Our university partners offer general support, career advice, access to professional networks, connections to internship and job opportunities, and financial support through scholarships and stipends.
We collaborate with our community partners to provide in-kind products and services, from clothing to housing. We work with other organizations in the foster space to advocate for policy and raise awareness.
For the majority of youth aging out of foster care, there is no safety net to rely on during the transition from dependence to independence. This places even more importance on caring and devoted adults.
Our advocates are professionals who step in to help our scholars navigate their school experience and become career-ready. They cover the kinds of basics that parents share with their job-hunting children: dressing for the part, showing up on time, preparing for interviews. They arm our scholars with the concrete skills they’ll need to successfully transition into a career, compassionately guiding them toward their goals.
