Think Out Loud

News Roundtable | From Foster Care To College

  • Foster youth are unlikely to attend college and even less likely to graduate. We speak with two former foster youth who’ve made the transition into a college education: PCC freshman Adonis Lomu and PCC sophomore Quintin Nickelson. They’ve gotten help from a New Avenues For Youth support program, funded by the Portland Children’s Levy, called Avenues to College.
