If you’re a student hoping to join College Bound, please click here to learn more.
College Bound is a service offered by Just in Time for Foster Youth that gives transition age foster youth in San Diego County all the tools, resources, and connections they need to succeed in college and beyond. During our annual College Bound event in June, up to 100 youth start their college year off with everything they need to overcome the odds and achieve their academic dreams.
College Bound is a day of community, with special speakers sharing insights on their college experiences, interactive games, a resource fair, and more. Plus, new participants gain the tangible tools they need to compete in college, including a new laptop and printer! Each youth is also paired with a volunteer coach to go on a Walmart shopping spree for school and dorm supplies. After the event ends, volunteer coaches continue to guide and support the youth throughout their college journeys — all the way to being there to cheer them on at graduation!
- Nationally, 60% of all youth enroll in college, and of those, 57% graduate.
- For youth who have been in foster care, only 10% of youth enroll in college and their graduation rate is only 3-6%.
- Just in Time is changing these unacceptable statistics through College Bound! Since its inception in 2006, the College Bound model for success has continued to have an extraordinary impact on enrollment and graduation outcomes for transition age youth.
- In fact, 75% of our College Bound participants to date (over 700 youth!) are still enrolled, have graduated, or are attending graduate school!
