Campus Support Programs Designed for Foster Youth

Q: I am working with a youth in extended foster care who’s going to be starting college in the fall. How do I find out if there is any support specifically for foster youth at the campus that she will be going to?

A: The California College Pathways website has a database that lists all of the campuses in California with campus support programs designated for foster youth. You can look up her campus and get the contact information for their program if one exists. If the campus isn’t listed, there are still resources available. For a list of Foster Youth contacts at each community college click here. There is also a list for all Cal State Universities. All 9 University of California campuses have foster youth programs and are listed in the database.
