  • Panel of youth formerly or currently in foster care who will provide advice and insight on applying to college and transitioning to college life
  • Workshops on financial aid, college application process, scholarships, and more
  • Workshop specifically for agency workers on educational planning

You will need to have the following information in order to register youth:

  • Youth’s age and email address (if available)

Lunch will be served and raffle prizes will be given out! We will also be giving out goodie bags of college resources to youth when they register. They are available on a first-come first-serve basis. We are asking all agencies arrive at 10:45 am to register youth.
