Nationally, only 46% of youth in foster care graduate high school and 3% graduate college. For children in foster care, educational achievement is the greatest counterweight to the negative effects of abuse and neglect. BFF removes many barriers and offers the guidance and advisement needed for educational success. Our programs ensure students have the same tools and support afforded to children in traditional homes. Through one-on-one attention and the following strategies, high school graduation is within reach for every foster care youth in our program. www.bestfoot.org
