​MISSION AND HISTORY

Moving from childhood to early adulthood can be a battle. We help teenagers prepare for it. The Foundation is home to a family of school-to-work services including Jobs for Florida's Graduates, Girls Get I.T., VOiCE and SUPERB. 

Originally founded in 1998, all of our services continue to be available to school districts, community based organizations, charter schools, alternative schools and colleges through-out Florida.

Although it's in our name we do not endow funds for the future. Our funds, whether government grants, charitable giving or private donations, go directly back into serving our students. 

The Foundation has invested over $20 million in more than 40,000 students navigate the transition from childhood to early adulthood since 2003.
