Our Underrepresented Youth: Risk by the Numbers

EOY provides a System of Mentorship based on shared experiences so every youth feels heard.

400,000

in foster care are underrepresented youth

23,000

children will age out every year

20%

of the children who were in foster care will become instantly homeless.

50%

Of foster kids who age out of the system will have gainful employment by the age of 24

A recent study found that 70% of foster youth would like to attend college.

Despite the challenges of foster care, these youth have dreams, ambitions, and the potential to succeed. However, like all children, they need guidance and support. Whether that comes from a family member, mentor, friend, teacher, or other member of the community, that support can make all the difference.
One positive adult relationship is sometimes the missing link for underrepresented youth to become successful. Mentoring is an opportunity for you to develop a long-term, one-on-one relationship with a youth who needs a role model, friend, and caring adult.
