Meet Our 2014 Aim Higher Fellows!

FC2S Staff | May 31st, 2014

Aim HigherAIM HIGHER uses video and social media to engage foster parents, social workers, mentors and employers in FC2S’ national movement to link education and training to employment and successful adulthood. 

Our 2014 Aim Higher Fellows came to Washington DC for two weeks of training on effective ways to share their stories to inspire others in foster care to pursue their own postsecondary education or training dreams.

Each Fellow is an outstanding student who represents the thousands of foster youth in colleges across the country.  Click  on 2014 Fellows – Bios to find out more about them.
