Great Expectations was launched in fall 2008 at five Virginia Community Colleges, each of which received a grant to pilot components of the program. Great Expectations has continued to expand to other community colleges across the Commonwealth.
Our goal is to be available and easily accessible for all foster youth in Virginia. Great Expectations helps Virginia’s foster youth complete high school, gain access to a community college education and transition successfully from the foster care system to living independently.
Key components include:

  • Individualized tutoring
  • Help applying for college admission and financial aid
  • Career exploration and coaching
  • Help applying for and keeping a job
  • Life skills training, including managing finances
  • Personalized counseling
  • Student mentors
