Planting seeds of hope for future leaders.


The MISSION of 2 Hands 2 Cans is to empower at-risk individuals with limited resources by  addressing both their immediate and long-term needs through extended job-skill training, education and career placement.


Why is it important? 

Across LA, unemployment rates are at 7.5% compared to 6.3% for the state of California. Individuals coming out of homelessness and poverty, foster care, and the military lack the tools and resources necessary to obtain full-time employment.

How do they do it? 

2 Hands 2 Cans is dedicated to excellence and empowerment, believing that everyone deserves a chance to succeed. Their goal is simple: to provide internships that lead to long-term employment and engage the community through their local garden events and programming. Partnering with businesses and organizations all over Los Angeles, their programs tackle barriers to the LA population including lack of transportation, education, training, mentorship and specialized skills.
