This report outlines a public-private partnership between the Casey Family Programs, New York City’s Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), the City University of New York (CUNY), and Goldman Sachs to develop and implement the Fostering College Success Initiative (FCSI) mentoring program. This program is available to CUNY students who are also in the ACS foster care system. The report summarizes the FCSI program’s core elements and discusses sustainability and replicability to other jurisdictions. It also offers lessons learned about the public-private partnership model and the next steps for the program.
