What We Do

Life Skills & Employment

Several Orangewood programs help current and former foster youth learn essential life skills that children and teens from stable families often learn from their parents, either directly or through observation. Our programs also help youth find employment and develop job-readiness skills; programs like our Lyon Workforce Academy where apprentices undergo a one-year, hands-on paid training program with one of our corporate partners.

Orangewood Foundation is changing the future for today’s foster youth one day at a time. We work with youth to help them identify their strengths, aptitudes, and abilities. Through our programs, we help empower youth to overcome their challenges and reach their greatest potential.
