Fostering Media Connections
Fostering Media Connections is a nonprofit news organization that seeks to reform the child welfare system through solution-oriented journalism.
Since 1976, Friends of Foster Children has worked to enhance the quality of life for foster or emancipated youth. Central to the organization's services is their Scholarship Program, which offers college and vocational scholarships for foster youth or emancipated individuals living in Los Angeles County. Each scholarship recipient is assigned to a volunteer committee member mentor who serves as an advisor throughout their education. Since 2003, the Scholarship Program has provided support for students at a wide range of top California universities, including UCLA, UC Berkeley, and USC. Additionally, Friends of Foster Children operates events throughout the year to offer resources and support during the holidays and back-to-school months. The organization's programs and events are run entirely by dedicated volunteers.
