key to growth
Great employees are the key to a successful business. If you’ve ever had the task of hiring staff, you know that finding great employees can be a time-consuming task. Enter the Keys to Success program from AFFCF. We work with young men and women, ages 16 – 24 who are or have been in foster care. They want to create their successful future. We want them to work for you.
A program of the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation, Keys to Success is a one-of-a-kind program offering career and employment development services uniquely tailored to meet the needs of the young men and women we serve. We work with the youth to set long and short-term career goals, attain education, develop skills and secure and maintain employment. We need you, as an employer, to help us get them started!
how it works

- Entry to mid-level employment
- Internships or apprenticeships that allow youth to gain technical and professional skills
- Volunteer work experiences that expose youth to an environment that ligns with their long-term career goals
- Seasonal work during school breaks so youth can develop basic work-readiness skills and build their resumes
So what’s in it for your business to work with Keys to Success? For starters:
You get candidates who have completed an intensive job-readiness program, participated in customer service training and demonstrated motivation to be good employees.
If hired, Keys to Success provides job rention services to our youth, including ongoing job coaching. These services not only ensure the youth’s long-term success, but also yours.
