The Education and Training Voucher Program helps youth aging out of foster care to make the transition to self-sufficiency and receive the education, training and services necessary to obtain employment. This program is designed to help youth who were in foster care pay for post-secondary education or training. ETV gives students up to $5000 a year for qualified school related expenses. Funding is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible students. Applicants must complete the ETV application which includes documentation each semester that is sent directly from the school confirming enrollment, the cost of attendance and unmet need.

If you have any additional questions regarding the ETV program please contact Kenneth Kirton at
