Foster youth attend Intel’s Kids to Work Day

News

One thousand seven hundred students attended Intel’s annual Kid to Work Day in Folsom on June 28, including 29 foster youth from Koinonia Family Services, a United Way certified partner agency. The youth attended the event as part of United Way’s Women in Philanthropy group that provides opportunities that prepare foster youth for emancipation.

Each year, Intel, United Way’s largest corporate donor, opens the Folsom campus to students ages 8-18. Intel’s goal is to inspire the next generation of innovators by introducing a hands-on discovery approach to math, science and technology. Kid to Work Day helps students form a link between what they learn in school and how it applies to the real world.
