YOUTH IN FOSTER CARE

9 months ago


If you have been in foster care any time after age 13, there are money and resources available to help you go to college at most Washington State schools, including vocational training, two-, and four-year options. Check out READY, SET GRAD or INDEPENDENCE for additional information and links.


Make It Happen!  is a three-day, two-night college campus experience for youth in and alumni of the Washington state foster care system. The free summer program includes college readiness workshops, resource connection events, and opportunities for strengthening supportive networks. As a result of attending MIH, students will feel more equipped to develop and initiate their post-secondary education plans. High school sophomores, juniors, and seniors are invited to apply to attend this camp. For more information, contact College Success Foundation at mih@collegesuccessfoundation.org or by phone at 425-213-5888.
