College Road Trips

Get inspired

Each summer, Foster Progress travels to Illinois colleges, bringing students, parents, and mentors to find out which colleges deliver success for youth in foster care! If you have always imagined yourself in college, now is the time to start your search. The trips are FREE to all youth ages 13 and up who were ever in foster care. Come explore schools like Illinois State University, North Park University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Judson University, University of Chicago, or any others you may be interested in. If you don't see a college you'd like to visit, let us know and we'll try to add it. Sign-ups for Summer 2018 are now available. Reserve your spot at least one week before the scheduled trip!
