PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – According to the Virginia Child Welfare Policy Coalition only 58 percent of foster children will graduate high school by age 19 and fewer than 3 percent will earn a college degree by age 25. Great Expectations is a partnership with Virginia’s Community Colleges and community supporters designed to help Virginia’s foster children finish high school and further their education.
Great Expectations Recruiter and Mentor, Antonio Dill-Ward, joined us on HRS to explain this program and why it’s so important.
