The mission of Jeremiah's Promise is to "love, challenge and equip" former foster youth for a better future. The aim of this tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) nonprofit is to build an enduring foundation beneath college-bound students, ages 17 to 24, who have suffered immeasurably during their early years. Our programs lay the groundwork for emotional and spiritual healing, academic resilience, leadership development, and relational and career skills competency.
Jeremiah's Promise has four touch points to this end:
- The Next Step - a unique, cloud-based tool to guide step by step and task by task.
- Foster Forward - college-based workshops to address core career competencies and soft skills development.
- 1-to-1 Meetings - to mentor college students and help meet basic needs, providing insight and encouragement to offset life's many challenges.
- Leadership Development - to assist high-achieving foster youth in Silicon Valley's transitional housing programs in meeting core needs to accelerate their progress.
