Youth in foster care learn college access information and valuable life skills at this free, four-day summit held every June at a Montana post-secondary institution. Youth stay in the dorms, attend “classes,” eat in the cafeteria, and experience college life firsthand. In addition, they learn life skills including how to find and maintain housing, build relationships, obtain employment, and manage money.
As an added benefit, participants take home a free laptop computer to assist with post-secondary education, or a “life skills” package to help them get ready for, and transition to, independent living.
