UNA AmeriCorps Fostering Success

Supporting Academic Success and Workforce Development for Students in Foster Care


The UNA Fostering Success AmeriCorps program leverages a variety of resources along with state, community and university agencies to build a stronger continuum of care toward academic and career pathways for foster youth as they transition into adulthood. 

The goal of this program is to recruit and support foster care youth pursuing a bachelor’s degree at UNA and transitioning into the workforce upon degree completion.
