The LACOE Foster Youth Services (FYS) Program is now accepting referrals for free tutoring to youth in Foster Care Residing in Los Angeles County.
LACOE FYS supports the academic needs of foster youth residing in group homes (licensed children’s institutions) and in foster care, those with foster family agencies and those in court-specified homes by providing 40 hours of free in-home tutoring services that includes homework help and academic tutoring for:
- Youth ages 4 to 21
- Who reside in Los Angeles County
- Have an active Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) court case or have an open Probation / Delinquency court case
If you know a youth who meets this criteria and would greatly benefit, please submit the Online Referral Application.
YPI is a proud tutoring provider for LACOE FYS Program. If you wish to have YPI provide services, please write down Youth Policy Institute in question 31. We have excellent tutors available throughout LA County who can provide individualized, 1:1, in-home tutoring services.
Space is limited. Based on funding, students may be eligible to receive up to 40 hours of educational support, which may end prior to June 30, 2017. Services are expected to begin as early mid-October 2016.
Please note that submitting more than one referral for a student will cause significant delays in processing. If you have a question about a previously submitted referral, please contact LACOE FYS Tutoring Referral Processing staff at (562) 922-6161 or email them at FYS_Tutoring@lacoe.edu.
