California Youth Ambassadors, please read this September 2014 California College Pathways: YouthSpeak Blog.

We asked California Scholars: "When you were in high school, did you know other foster youth who had a goal of attending college? Or - once in college -- did you connect with foster care alumni? What role does this type of peer support play in your educational success?"

John gave us a great quote on the California Scholars Facebook page. Now we need to have a list of recommendations to include. How can you help college age foster youth connect with peer support, and stay focused on higher education at the same time?

Here is an example of past blogs. Briana was quoted in this one! http://www.cacollegepathways.org/blog/youthspeak-reconnecting-family

Thanks for your help! This is going to be published next week.
