November 04, 2016

YouTube Preview ImageThe NYC Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) and the City University of New York (CUNY) have announced a joint initiative that will support 50 foster care youth attending CUNY colleges this fall with academic and financial support. The new program, which is part of the Fostering College Success initiative, began this summer with New York Foundling providing tutoring and other supportive services to 40 foster care youth. The youth are now enrolled in academic programs at ten CUNY colleges across the city and are living on campus in the Queens College dormitory. An additional 11 students have enrolled at the College of Staten Island (CSI) and are residing on that campus.

“The College of Staten Island has embraced the motto of Opportunity and Challenge since 1956.  Today we are humbled and honored to be a lead college with CUNY and New York City’s Administration for Children’s services in providing opportunities to this important and valued group of tomorrow’s leaders,” noted CSI President William J. Fritz.
