The aspirations of foster youth are high, but outcomes for foster youth are grim. 30% of foster youth perform below grade level, 50% are held back in school, 46% do not complete high school, and only 3% go on to college. A number of community organizations are hosting a school community conversation about foster youth called “A Night for Abigail” on Monday, June 1, 2009.
The event will take place at 7-9 PM at the Hillsdale High School Auditorium, 3115 Del Monte Street, in San Mateo. (view map). 17th District PTA is endorsing this event and we encourage you to attend. Please RSVP to t…@advocatesfc.org.
