Description

Are you a college student with a knack for internet research and a desire to help others? If you answered yes, then a virtual internship with Foster Care to Success (FC2S) may be a great fit for you!

Since 1981, Foster Care to Success has helped former foster youth find pathways to success through higher education. As a national leader in developing programs and scholarships to enable students to attend, persist and graduate from college or trade school, FC2S offers students mentoring and coaching, internships, care packages and career readiness programs.
