Foster Youth Support Services
The Foster Youth Support Services Program at Long Beach City College is dedicated to supporting current and former foster youth students to provide a smooth transition into college. Our team is committed to creating a caring, equitable, and inclusive community where all foster youth can attain their educational, career, and personal goals. We aim to provide a “One-Stop-Shop” that offers personalized assistance with educational goals by offering holistic services such as academic counseling, personal support, book grants, and referrals to LBCC and community resources. We are proud to have 2 programs serving foster youth: NextUp Program and Guardian Scholars Program.
