Guardian Scholars Program

Everyone comes from somewhere. But not everyone gets the chance to see how far they can go.

The Guardian Scholars Program provides comprehensive services and support for former foster youth to maximize educational opportunities and pursue undergraduate degrees.

Over the past seven years, Guardian Scholars Program has helped more than 80 of every 100 students stay in and graduate from college. Guardian Scholars Program services include academic advising, personal and life skills training and support, assistance with financial and housing matters, career counseling and post-graduation preparation, as well as mentoring and leadership opportunities.

Private support is crucial to the Guardian Scholars Program. Every gift touches the life of a special someone who, with your help, can beat the odds.
