Foster youth often face unique challenges when attempting to pursue higher education. According to a recent study, only 3‐4% of former youth obtain a 4‐year college degree and only between 2‐6% receive a 2‐year degree. Data shows that only 50% of children in foster care will graduate high school. The goal of this class is to provide foster and adoptive parents with the tools and resources needed to support their child in pursuing a higher education. Participants will learn about the various scholarships and financial aid packages available to foster and adoptive children and how to create a supportive environment at home that will encourage youth to pursue higher education.
