Success StoriesIn Their Own Words

Foster youth are activists, poets, entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, travelers - and successful students.

Too often they are depicted solely from the perspective of their foster care background. Their words and actions prove that they are much more than that – with support and hard work they can be, and are, confident, successful members of their communities. Every day, our students act on their dreams and raise their voices on behalf of the things they believe in.

We recently asked some of our students to offer advice to their peers about achieving success in school, work, and life in general. These videos are their responses. They are written and produced by young people, and it’s their way of sharing their experiences and voices with the larger community.
