We Walk, So They Can Run. Join Us.

Update 5/29/2020: Just two days left and we're less that $2,000 dollars away from hitting our stretch goal of $20,000! Can you chip in $10, $25 or $50 to help us reach our goal so we can give youth aging out of foster care the same help we received? Just click the orange donate button. Thank you! 

Update 5/7/2020: Three weeks ago, we launched our Virtual Walk. We wanted to raise $10,000. So far, we’ve raised a little more than $11,000!

The walk doesn’t end until May 31, so we want to keep going and see if we can raise $20,000 now. We and a lot of the other youth in Keys to Success are being hit hard by this COVID-19 crisis. We’ve lost jobs and are worrying about how to pay for food, bills and rent. For us, this is really scary because we don’t have a family that we can ask for help.

But we do have the Keys to Success team. We know they’ll be there, especially during times like these. We want to help them because we want other kids like us to get they same help we did.

So…can you help us get to $20,000 by May 31?

We grew up in foster care. While most kids can’t wait to turn 18, kids in foster care dread that age. We know that feeling of panic. Fortunately, Keys to Success has been there to change our stories into ones that have a positive path forward. We know firsthand how this program helps kids aging out of foster care.

Today, we’re asking you to join us to #DotheVirtualWalk and ensure other kids in foster care can change their stories through Keys to Success like we did.

We are Carlos, Amber, Ryan, Ashley, Jesus, Cheyenne and Jillian. We are proof it works. As members of the Keys to Success Youth Advisory Board, we are using our experiences to make it better for more kids in foster care.

This program has helped me get my own apartment and find a job that has led to more opportunities."

Your participation in and/or donation to the 2020 Keys to Success Virtual Walk helps fund critical services such as career development and employment services. It means youth in the program can learn job interviewing skills, learn to write a resume and get help finding a job. It means they can get help with education so they can graduate or earn their GED. It means they can connect to resources and services that help them either go to college or trade school and have a career. It means everything.
