Education Advocacy for At-Risk Youth

The Education Advocacy Program for Youth in Foster Care seeks to promote school success and stability by providing an advocate who creates and monitors educational plans, improves educational services, empowers and supports the youth, builds a supportive network in the school and increases the role of school as an anchor.

Eligibility - The youth must be in out-of-home care and under the jurisdiction of the Washtenaw court due to neglect, abuse or delinquency or have an open Washtenaw County CPS Case. The Student Advocacy Center works with children up to age 21, as long as they haven’t graduated high school and have a case open with MDHHS.
