REACH/Foster Youth

Staying in school can be a challenging experience for students. Whatever the obstacles and challenges may be foster youth are more likely than other young people to face them alone. We at the UW Bothell in collaboration with UW Seattle’s Champions Program are focused on student success. We are determined to provide the necessary support so that each individual can reach his or her goal of achieving a higher education.
