Helping young men and women in their transition from orphanage to society.

We help young men and women transition from orphanages to society. This transition is very difficult for many youth after spending so much time in orphanages. They go from a safe and protected life at the orphanage and out to a society with high unemployment, few opportunities, and a high crime rate. Sadly, many of them are easy targets for gangs, violence, and prostitution.

Youth for Honduras is focused on meeting this need in partnership with orphanages all over Honduras. We provide housing, life and job skills training, and a network of counselors, tutors, and mentors to help the youth become independent members of society.
