Advocacy Day 2021

 

On Tuesday January 26, 2021, Please Join the Fostering Youth Success Alliance for our virtual Advocacy Day.

Foster Youth College Success Campaign

Help us advocate for the continued funding support of the Foster Youth College Success Initiative (FYCSI). First established in April 2015, FYCSI connects foster care youth and alumni to financial support and comprehensive resources on college campuses. From 2015-2020 1,500 foster youth received direct support through the program and even more than 1100 are on track to do so this year.

Nationwide just 18-24% of youth in care will enroll in college after high school and less than 3% will go on to graduate. FYCSI provides these foster care youth and alumni with the resources necessary to earn a college degree and achieve true independence, but it needs continued funding in order to do so. Join us for our Virtual Advocacy Day to make sure FYCSI can continue to support hundreds of foster care youth and alumni from all across the state!
