Fostering Education Futures

About Us

Fostering Education Futures (FEF) is a program that assists our foster youth and young parent participants as they explore post-secondary education possibilities – including college searches and goal development.

FEF Seeks to answer the question, “Should I (or could I) go to college?” for these youth.

Teen parents and youth transitioning out of the foster care system often need assistance in navigating the maze of the college financial aid and application process. Some need assurance that they are, indeed candidates for higher education.
