Supporting youth education.

Success takes support

Who we help

Youth in care 'age out' of the system at age 19 losing all support from their foster parents, social workers, government programs, along with any financial assistance. Other young people may have a family to fall back on, but former youth in care often have no one, making pursuing post-secondary education and future careers challenging.

How we help

Recognizing the vital role that education plays in helping a young person realize their potential, the Youth Futures Education Fund provides low-barrier access to funds to support living expenses to youth who have aged out of the foster care system and are attending a post-secondary institution on a tuition waiver.

Why it matters

Post-secondary education not only helps a young person realize their potential, but also helps establish a network of friends, colleagues, and mentors. All youth should have the same opportunities to pursue this reality. The Youth Futures Education Fund recognizes this and is here as a support to youth aging out of care.

Helping youth achieve their potential

The Youth Futures Education Fund helps create equal educational opportunities for young adults who have been in government care. Meet young adults following their dreams.
