Supportive Services

Your Bridges representative can help you navigate your educational path, whether that involves GED testing, an ApprenticeOhio program, vocational school, community college or four-year college. 

As a former foster youth, you may be eligible for a variety of financial aid, including scholarships, need-based aid and help through the Education and Training Voucher (ETV) program, which provides federal assistance for education for young people who aged out of foster care or who were adopted after age 16.
