As an Academic Success Program coach with Foster Care to Success (FC2S), I am rewarded with seeing my students grow and blossom throughout their college years, while experiencing tremendous personal growth myself through these relationships. I love being a part of their academic and everyday lives as a coach, sounding board, encourager, editor, and support structure. I love seeing the world through their eyes!
This unique volunteer opportunity is in line with my education, experience, and interests through serving others. I love working with foster youth of diverse cultures who have aged out of the system, as I relate easily to this age group. My education and clinical experience are in cognitive behavioral therapy, and FC2S operates on a cognitive construct. This organization is a good fit for me because it utilizes both my natural and acquired talents and skills.
