Foster Youth Awareness Week

Monday, May 08, 2017 - Friday, May 12, 2017
The UCLA Bruin Guardian Scholars (BGS) Program will be celebrating Foster Youth Awareness Week! Check out their calendar line-up for the week!

The month of May is  National  Foster Care Month! Currently there are over 400,000 children placed in the foster care system nationwide. Of those who have spent time in the public child welfare system, only 10% attend college and 3% graduate. The Bruin Guardian Scholars Program located within the Bruin Resource Center was established to provide support and a sense of community to current and former foster youth attending UCLA.  In order to build awareness regarding issues faced by this community the UCLA Bruin Guardian Scholars Program will be hosting “BGS Foster Youth Awareness Week!”
