Foster Youth Services

  • Foster Youth Services

    The San Juan Foster Youth Services program is one of the four original "Core District" foster youth programs in California, having been started in 1973. The program provides services to students in foster care, including advocacy, academic counseling, tutoring, educational assessment, mentoring and links to community services. In addition, we provide crisis counseling, vocational training, emancipation services and training for independent living. The goal of Foster Youth Services is to ensure that each foster youth is provided with the skills needed to become an independent, productive member of our community.
