Grant #23: Judi – The Wily Network
7/30/16 (at the Festival on the Farm)
Youth who grow up in foster care age out of the system just as they begin their college careers. The Wily Network steps in at this critical juncture and provide a support system for youth to ensure they have the emotional and financial resources they need to graduate and go on to stable, successful careers. New to Boston, The Wily Network’s services are much needed in an area filled with colleges and universities. They will use their $5,000 grant to fund the addition of one new scholar to the “Wily Pack” – funding to be used to cover those things that traditional financial aid doesn’t cover (books, school supplies, public transportation, etc.) but are critical to student retention and success.
