For anyone else who wants to see young adults succeed in college:

College Bound ensures that participating transition age foster youth make it all the way to college graduation. Our record of success speaks for itself:
Since 2006, 75% of College Bound participants have succeeded to graduate versus 3-6% of foster youth nationwide!

Why is College Bound so effective?

Because students receive essential tools, resources, and encouragement from an entire community of volunteers, peers, and collaborative partners who COMMIT to their success all the way to graduation and beyond. Your fully tax-deductible investment in College Bound makes this possible!  

Virtually Unstoppable College Bound 2020 will include:

  • Drive-Thru Days on July 18 and 25, when students will pick up their laptops, printers, and dorm and school supplies from JIT headquarters
  • Virtual pairings and gatherings of students with volunteers
  • A Virtual Celebration on Saturday August 1 from 11am-noon, open to the entire JIT community!
  • Ongoing assistance with online learning and any other challenges that stand in the way of educational success

FACTS

  • 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, 80% of our College Bound participants to date (over 700 youth!) are still enrolled, have graduated, or are attending graduate school!
