Volunteer to mentor a youth who is either preparing to age out of foster care or who is a foster care alum.
Thousands age out of foster care without a permanent home or family support.
Many of these young adults become homeless, pregnant, or incarcerated.
For this often-forgotten group, having a mentor can make the difference between statistic or success!
High school dropout rates are 3 times higher for foster youth than other low-income children
Only 3% of foster youth will graduate college. The national average is 35% for a 4-year degree.
