Lessons From One College’s Foster-Youth Effort
Kelly Field, The Chronicle of Higher Education
Ball State University’s Guardian Scholars Program is one of the longest-running efforts to help college students who have been in foster care. The program has learned a variety of lessons, thanks in part to a 2007 review conducted by the university’s Social Science Research Center. Researchers offer their take about what works and what doesn’t, and how the program has evolved since then.
