About

Imagine a young person trying to apply for college without the support of a parent, or a student with a learning disability who has been removed from their family trying to learn how to read.

FosterEd, a nonprofit new to Maricopa County, provides direct services to students in state care with the goal that every student graduates high school with the widest array of possibilities for their future. But we need your help to succeed!

By becoming an Academic Guide for a foster youth you will be helping a student that cannot access existing tutoring and community support resources. You do not have to have teaching or tutoring experience to support students in need. You just need time, the ability to travel to meet the student, and a little patience. We'll help with the rest. Be the person that changes a foster child's life today!
