Foster Youth

Bring out your best in school, jobs and life.

College is exciting - a whole new way of thinking and doing things. Identify strengths and passions to help you make a confident transition from high school to higher education & beyond.

Participate in six summer workshops designed for students to work together to find solutions to sensitive issues related to this stage of life. The series also will be counted as part of the training for the STEP program.

Brought to you in cooperation with Jeremiah's Promise, CSM and San Mateo County HSA's Education and Employment Services for Transition Age Foster Youth and THP-P Youth.
  • Discover your dreams and strengths
  • Counts toward STEP training
  • Do it together! Solve the tough issues
  • $50 gift cards every third workshop
