The 2014-15 group of Ambassadors are former foster youth from all over California. They are pursing education, ranging from early higher education to Doctorate degrees!
Over the course of the next year, the 2014-15 California Youth Ambassadors will serve locally in their counties on various committees, boards, events, and more.. all working towards ensuring today’s foster youth have every equal opportunity to pursue their educational dreams. Ambassadors are involved on a statewide level, working closely with California Education Equals Partnership and California College Pathways to infiltrate and compliment programs and opportunities already in-place.
The 2014-15 California Youth Ambassadors are working towards making it possible for California foster youth to have a fair and equal chance at education. Only about 45% of California’s foster youth graduate high school. Even less go onto post-secondary education. Our Youth Ambassadors know that education is the key to many opportunities and will do what it takes to make sure their fellow foster youth and alumni know this too!
