Junket Inc. is a for life entrepreneurial mentoring group for youth involved in the foster care system holding a primary goal of equipping youth with realistic and tangible life skills as they transition into independent living.
While building up support Junket provides practical tools and funds to support the youth as they create and manage a project of their choosing. The project enables them to build skills which can later be applied in a work environment, with leadership, relationship building, and conflict resolution as core values. A dual purpose of the project is to learn the significance of giving back. The proceeds of the project are invested back into the community whether by donation or hands-on volunteer experience.
Junket is dedicated to walk alongside the youth as they develop their understanding of self-worth and their ability to direct their future and the world in which they live.
