Florida Reach

Florida Reach is a virtual network of child welfare, K-12 and higher education professionals working with youth and young adults, as well as youth advocates. Our mission is to improve post-secondary outcomes and career transitions for foster care youth and alumni through support, resources, networking and determining collective impact.

  • Support: Florida Reach helps organizations and individuals determine how they can best serve youth and alumni of foster care.
  • Resources: Our website and resource guide centralizes resources available to youth and alumni of foster care in Florida.
  • Networking: Our statewide and regional meetings, and monthly conference calls allow professionals to connect and maximize resources.
  • Collective Impact: Network members collect quality data to better inform policies and practices that lead toward increased outcomes that benefit youth and alumni of foster care in a holistic way.

Nearly all Educate Tomorrow students qualify for the Florida tuition fee exemption pursuant to 1009.25(1)(c), (d), Fla. Stat. Through its history running nationally-recognized mentoring and youth development programs, Educate Tomorrow has been successfully supporting high school and college students as they strive to reach their education-related goals.
