Nationally, 2% of youth who have experienced foster care graduate with a bachelor's degree despite 80% reporting they have aspirations to attend college. Further, over 60,000 people identify as homeless on the FAFSA each year but are also underrepresented at graduation. Facilitators will share the unique needs of this student population and how family privilege impacts success in college. Participants will learn strategies for being a supportive adult and how to positively impact the campus culture for students from foster care or homelessness.
