What is DCS Post-Secondary Education Day: DCS has developed a Post-Secondary Education Day for foster youth which will take place on Saturday, October 14th from 9:00am – 4:00pm at the University of Phoenix in Tempe.  We entitled the event “Choose Your Own Adventure” because we believe that there is a world full of possibilities to all foster youth, they simply must choose their own adventure.  The purpose of this event is to provide foster youth with a snapshot into the educational and vocational opportunities available to them as they consider their plans after high school (or after age 18).  The event will cover writing college entrance exams, establishing good supports, what is Financial Aid, etc.

Who can attend: All current and former foster youth 16 years old and up.  Foster families, supportive partners, and chaperones can attend as well.*

*Tickets for this group are limited and are on a first come first serve basis.
