Grant renewed to support post-secondary access for former foster youth

The Stuart Foundation recently renewed a $90,000 grant to continue supporting the College Success Program, which serves former foster youth on campus. The grant will fund the second year of the three-year multi-campus project called “the College Pathways King County Network.” The program seeks to improve access to and completion of college for former foster youth. The renewed funding will fund professional development for staff, bolster support services and trainings for students, and providing staff with resources to create a network of support for students – such as the ability to provide healthy snacks to create a welcoming space for students to engage with support staff.
