The YourNMC program at Northwestern Michigan College is designed to help current and former foster youth who are transitioning into college life and adulthood. This program will provide students with hands on support as they get connected with NMC’s campus. Supports include: mentoring, financial assistance, academic and personal support, and ongoing activities to get connected to campus life. Through the YourNMC program, students are assisted in navigating though the college system from admissions until graduation. Counselors, faculty, students and staff work together with the student to achieve academic and personal success. Connections to local resources are also available, including a Department of Human Services education planner and MI Youth Opportunities Initiative resources.
