New Website Helps Empower Foster Youth to Make Fully-Informed Decisions About Their College Options
 
A new website called FosteringQualityEducation.org was recently launched by the Children’s Advocacy Institute to guide foster youth through evaluating and choosing a college, with an emphasis on how to avoid for-profit institutions that may not be cost-effective and won’t necessarily deliver on promises made in marketing materials. Tips about how to evaluate the quality of a college, its suitability for the student, and making the most of financial aid are conveyed through informative and relatable videos. There are links to numerous websites with further assistance to help students navigate the landscape of private colleges and degree granting institutions and protect themselves from misleading advertising and, in some cases, even predatory practices.
