More than 500 children in the Virginia foster care system age out each year. Without social or family support, foster care children experience significant challenges living on their own. However, with access to education and training and resources, foster youth can find fulfilling, family-sustaining employment.
Our mission is to serve Virginia’s foster youth through providing resources, tools, information and guidance to empower them in reaching their educational and career goals, and, assisting them in their transition into healthy and successful adulthood.
Our vision is being able to have more than half of the foster youth at PVCC leaving with a degree or credential in their hands. We hope that we can help the Foster Youth at PVCC feel that they can continue their education and find a career for their future.
