Mission Statement:

The Guardian Scholars Program is committed to helping college-bound students, exiting the foster care system, by providing a comprehensive support program to be successful in college. We serve as a resource center, providing assistance to students with their development of educational skills such as achieving an associate degree, completing a certificate program, or transferring to a university; as well as developing interpersonal skills to help them become self-sufficient role-models and individuals in their community. We also provide direct services, such as book vouchers and transportation, to assist with college costs, and referrals to community-based resources as needed and available. Our goal is to support our students so they can realize their dreams.
