Not only does The Blue Ribbon Project strive to teach foster youth important life skills through its Aging Up...Not Out program, we also work to help connect foster youth with local employers within the community. Assisting foster youth in finding employment not only helps them develop important life skills, but it also can mean a connection to a lifelong mentor, the ability to envision a career path, a boost in self-confidence, an appreciation for the value of education, a path of not ending up on the street, and a belief that you can be something.
The Blue Ribbon Project's Job-Connect is a connection portal between foster youth and prospective employers within the community. It is free for businesses to list employment opportunities for foster youth on our website. We will also assist the child with any needs or assistance in obtaining employment.
