GUARDIAN SCHOLARS AND SIMILAR PROGRAMS

The number of college and university programs that provide support services to former foster youth to assist them with their goals in higher education is increasing all the time. The programs vary from college to college and each may offer different support services. If you are interested in going to college, it would definitely be worthwhile to spend a little time finding out where you can find such a program to fit your needs.
