Role of Trinity Opportunity Alliance

  • Provide training for the employer partners’ managers and supervisors on the unique characteristics of foster youth — both their assets and their challenges.

  • Work with Youth Partner Agencies to identify potential candidates for positions.

  • Establish mechanisms to identify issues faced by employers that hire youth.

  • Identify policy and system issues faced by employers and develop strategies to resolve these issues. 

  • Identify ways that faith communities can support the program. 

  • Develop strategies other employers and communities can utilize to scale the program.

Being able to help remove challenges from youth transitioning into adulthood and being productive members of society is reward beyond measure. When we can then guide them into being the future leaders of our company, it is a bonus without boundaries.
