Fostering Bright Futures
Fostering Bright Futures Fellowship (FBFF) program is a public-private partnership that addresses the overwhelming need for a comprehensive support structure to assist foster youths in making the transition from the Wake County Foster Care System to independent young adulthood.
For every 35-50 youths that graduate from high school and phase out of the foster care system, 20 may be college ready. The objective of the FBFF program is to eliminate the barriers that would typically derail those graduates from meeting educational and life goals. By providing, financial, academic, and social support, the FBFF program helps these youths learn the skills they need to live as independent adults and get the education needed to secure gainful and meaningful employment.
The program is made possible by a partnership of the Fostering Bright Futures Collaborative Advisory Board, Wake Technical Community College, the Wake Technical Community College Foundation and the Wake County Human Services Bridge to Independence.
