Seita Scholars Program

The Seita Scholars Program is part of a larger initiative to change the college going paradigm of youth in the foster care system. We are a campus-based support program that provides holistic coaching and programming to college students with lived experience in foster care. For youth with experience in foster care, data shows only a range of 2-10%, earn a college degree at any point in their life. (Geiger & Beltran, 2017; Okpych et at., 2021; Legal Center, 2022).
