The NYFC Back-to-School Package program provides youth in foster care enrolled in college or an accredited vocational program with the tools necessary to succeed during their entire educational experience. Packages are sent each semester that the student is enrolled in college up to age 25.
FOR YOUNG PEOPLE STILL IN FOSTER CARE:
Young people who are still in foster care will continue to be registered by their agency worker.
FOR YOUNG PEOPLE WHO HAVE AGED OUT OF FOSTER CARE:
These young people will be able to apply for their own packages, if they meet the following requirements:
- Have aged out of foster care in New York City
- Be under age 25
- Be registered to attend college or a vocational training program for the upcoming semester
Submit the application to Catherine Hilyard, including a copy of unofficial college transcript and class schedule for this semester
