Foster Care to College (FC2C): Fostering Success for the Future
Supporting students and professionals in Pennsylvania
To address this need in Pennsylvania, the Field Center is engaging in a menu of FC2C activities, including convening a stakeholder networking and work group, conducting research, providing professional development and training, and advocating for legislative and policy change, both on local and national levels. The Field Center is currently supporting numerous colleges and universities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the development and operation of campus-based support programs for students with foster care experience. A list of Campus-Based Support Programs is available in the 2021 Campus Programming Directory for Foster Youth.
To be added to the mailing list to receive the Foster Care to College Newsletter and stay informed about issues related to foster youth and higher education across Pennsylvania, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
