MOTOPARA Foundation™’s SPEAR™ initiative is a multifaceted bridge for aging out and aged-out foster care youth who are managed and mentored by the skilled Veterans supporting the MOTO+PARA™ organization and missions.
We provide these emerging adults with training and first jobs, and an opportunity for advancement within our organization or outside.
Combining Veterans transitioning from military service to civilian life together with high school students and grads creates a culture of diligence, camaraderie, and healthy choices to help ensure successful, sustainable lives in the communities we serve. Included in the initiative are administrative, service & maintenance and distribution center jobs, nutrient-rich meals, life skills and business training, health and wellness services, sustainable living education, and access to community resources.
To help ensure the success of SPEAR™, MOTOPARA Foundation™ brings together community leaders in various practices including educators, advocates, social services and other organizations that focus on the wellness and well-being of these Veterans returning to civilian life, as well as these emerging adults.
