Youth who age out of foster care have rocky statistics. 7% earn an associate’s degree and 3% earn a bachelor’s. While 70% want to go to college, 30% apply. Those who do attend often have limited family support and drop out.
Our Student Advocate provides the support necessary so youth coming from foster care succeed in college. We interview potential students, invite them into the college setting, and provide quality tutors.
The program is open to 11th and 12th graders, students gaining a GED, and high school graduates.
