You may have talked about the 7 Life Domains to your campus coach, or maybe you've never even heard of them! The 7 Life Domains is a helpful way to understand the different things in your life that can effect getting to college, staying in college and graduating. As students with experience in foster care, we can use the 7 Life Domains as a way to problem solve things in our lives that can get in the way of our goals. This webinar breaks down the 7 Life Domains in a way like never before! Youth with experience in foster care can start using this tool to help prepare them for college at as early as 13 years old. In the webinar, students share their experiences and advice on ways to be successful getting to and staying in college. They answer common questions that students with experience in foster care may have about college.
