UCF Gives Kids in Foster Care a Feel for College Life

The University of Central Florida is partnering with Community Based Care of Central Florida and First Star – a national nonprofit serving abused and neglected children – in hosting local foster children on campus in an effort to increase their educational opportunities.

During the month of July, 12 students in grades 8-12 will live on UCF’s campus, immersing themselves in a one-of-a-kind learning experience that includes math and literacy tutoring by UCF education students, field trips and career-oriented workshops.
