California College Pathways Foster Youth Educational Planning Guide

California College Pathways has developed the Foster Youth Educational Planning Guide which we hope will enhance your work with youth in foster care.

We want foster youth, caregivers, social workers, educators and advocates to use this guide to monitor and track the educational progress of these young adults.
