Foster Youth Success Initiative (FYSI) is a statewide effort supported by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office. The purpose of FYSI is to create a network of support that will meet the academic, social, emotional, and financial needs of college-bound students. The program is fully committed to empowering these youth to become self-supporting, conscious community leaders, role models, and competent professionals in their fields of interest. In addition, we provide a comprehensive support program to increase the number of former foster youth graduating from a community college with an associate’s degree, vocational training, or transferring to a four-year university.
