52% of former foster youth are unemployed within 4 years of leaving foster care. 1 in 4 will become homeless within those 4 years. We saw an opportunity to break cycles of poverty by providing jobs and work training. So we created the Sustainable Life Project, a culinary internship program for foster youth.

Holy cow, this is amazing what can I do?!

If you'd like to give back to support foster youth, please consider donating or volunteering with one of our favorite partner organizations. We don't accept donations for our program, but you can always support us by eating at your nearest Tender Greens location!
If you're someone who provides services or support for emancipated foster youth, join our coalition! If it takes a village, let's join our villages to create a network in support of each other. Together we can work smarter to break cycles of poverty. Give Foster Youth a Chance Coalition (Facebook Group).
Thanks for watching, and thank you for caring! We believe in giving back to our communities in meaningful ways and paying it forward whenever we can.
