Lifeskills workshop teaches foster youth important lessons
Women in Philanthropy members teach foster youth about personal branding and etiquette
When foster youth emancipate from the system, their futures are bleak. The statistics speak for themselves:
• More than 50% have no earnings in 4 years
• Only 25% are consistently employed
United Way’s Women in Philanthropy is a group of women dedicated to making a dent in those numbers.
United Way California Capital Region had an exciting 2016 as we launched the Square One Project with the goal to significantly increase the number of kids who graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond. We cannot achieve these goals without the help of our generous supporters, donors, and volunteers.
United Way honored these individuals and companies who are making a lasting impact in our communities at our recent Donor Reception.

See how and why Women in Philanthropy is supporting local foster teens
At the recent Women in Philanthropy Luncheon, we unveiled a video that illustrates the struggles foster youth go through as they approach adulthood and what United Way is doing to change the lives for these local teens. As you’ll see in the video, with your support, we CAN positively affect the outcomes for hundreds of youth in our region.
A special thank you to Light Media Productions and one of our program partners, Koinonia Homes for Teens.
