Foster Youth Success Program

Come make history by succeeding in the Foster Youth Success Program and then sharing your success with the next generation of foster youth at Santa Rosa Junior College!

Our objective for this program is to increase the academic performance of former foster youth in community college courses leading to certificate completion, graduation, and/or transfer. Specifically we provide the following:

  • A one-to-one case management system to support each student’s success and assist in their use of all appropriate academic and student services
  • Enhanced counseling and academic assessment services
  • Specialized classes designed to assist you in mastering SRJC and learning how to be a productive and efficient student such as Counseling 355 and Community Service Education
  • Goal setting and support through an on-going homeroom on Wednesdays from 12 – 1:30pm
  • A strong sense of community identity through group activities

For more information about this program, contact Nick Lawrence, MA, Program Coordinator at or by phone at (707) 535-3752 or FAX (707) 535-3753. We are located in the hallway just past EOPS, second floor Bertolini. Nick Lawrence is in 4721 and our staff are in 4723 and 4724.
