Here this! – Youth Foundation/Guardian Scholars stories now online

Friday, February 5th, 2010


In January, 2010, we went up to Edwards, CO for the second time to work with The Youth Foundation and the Guardian Scholars program to help former foster youth and children of undocumented migrant workers tell and share their stories. The Youth Foundation provides and supports programs that serve economically disadvantaged youth from pre-school through college. The common theme in all of the Youth Foundation’s efforts is jumping in to not only keep kids from “falling through the cracks,” but lift them up through education, sports and opportunities that promote character development…like digital storytelling. Some of the youth they work with receive full ride scholarships to go to college from the Guardian Scholars program. These are the people we had the chance to spend the weekend with.

Here are their stories.
