Guardian Scholars Program
The Guardian Scholars Program (GSP) exists to provide support for youth who are or have been part of the California foster care system and who are enrolled for studies at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC). We exist to offer support and assistance in a number of very useful and reassuring ways. We have our own designated place on campus where these youth can just hang out together and share common experiences. We offer mentoring and counseling, for both academics and careers. We help find affordable housing, employment, provide transportation assistance and many other services. We teach students to advocate for themselves, so that they can achieve their academic goals and get a proper start on new long-term careers. We use our resources to help them to succeed in every way possible.
They have applied for admission to LATTC or are already enrolled in the current semester. They are currently or were formerly a part of the state’s foster care system. They are between the ages of 16 and 35.
