Over 110 volunteers assisted staff with logistics, presentations and classroom support. A big thank you for helping to make Saturday's event a special day for foster youth.
This year, our exciting partnership with Together We Rise provided over 60 bikes to middle school students. During the workshop each student assembled a bike that they took home with them at the end of the day.
Foster youth need the chance to build a strong sense of self, and having access to their own bike to help them get to and from school and other activities and simply spend more time outside is a great way to help their ongoing development. Polly Williams, UFC President
Since starting the event 13 years ago, over 5,000 LA foster youth have participated in College Within Reach and UFC has sent over 500 kids to college!
