College Within Reach

17th Annual College Preparatory Event
Saturday, September 17th, 2016

UFC has partnered again with the USC School of Social Work to help foster youth get on the path to college. Open to students in grades 6-12 living in foster care or emancipated foster youth, as well as caregivers and social workers.

“I never thought I would go to college. I’m the first in my family to go and thanks to this event I was exposed to workshops and activities to help get me on track. And I got to learn all about the college admissions process and meet reps from different schools.”
