Foster youth on the path to college

  • College Possible Twin Cities

A University of Chicago 2010 study found that only six percent of former foster youth earned a college degree by age 24, compared to 27.5 percent of the general population.

With support from the Bentson Family Foundation, College Possible is developing a new program to improve outcomes for low-income students in foster care or experiencing housing instability due to foster care transitions.

A new Foster Youth Program Manager will oversee the development of the program, serving 65 Twin Cities students in its first three years.
