Who helped you achieve your dreams?

Back in 2006, Just in Time volunteers wanted to answer that question for the hundreds of young people leaving foster care who faced overwhelming odds to overcome national statistics predicting only 3% of them would graduate from college.

They knew that their own children needed a combination of essential tools and resources like laptops, printers, dorm and school supplies, as well as consistent support and encouragement, to overcome the inevitable challenges, doubts, and obstacles that can derail a college education.

And so College Bound was launched.

Now, as we prepare for our 13th College Bound cohort for 55 eager and determined students, we offer an extraordinary opportunity for you to have a significant impact by turning academic dreams into a confident, capable and connected future. With your support, it is remarkable what heights our youth can reach.

Through our innovative community-based model which focuses on personal empowerment and the development of caring relationships, Just in Time has achieved enrollment and graduation rates that are well above the state and national averages for foster youth. 93% of foster youth reported a desire to go to college, while only 3-6% will go on to earn a degree. College Bound has a proven track record of success having served over 550 youth with 67% either still enrolled or graduated!
