Portland State University - Futures Program

FUTURES looks to enhance self-determination in freshman, sophmore, or junior college students at Portland State University and Portland Community College who have lived experience in the foster care system. Upper division students, known as near-peer coaches, offer support regarding relationships, communication skills, careers, and academics. Near-peer coaches connect their students to Campus Champions, who serve as resources within the different departments at PSU and PCC. Additionally, students and their mentors participate in leadership and community building workshops twice a term.
