NextUP/Foster Youth

Contra Costa College serves former foster youth with a wide variety of student services, within the EOPS program, and via the NextUP program (exclusively for former foster youth) – which launches in Fall 2023! 

Interested former foster youth students should follow the steps below to apply for EOPS and check the “foster youth” box in the EOPS application to be contacted about their eligibility for NextUP supports and services.  


Former foster youth (and those that serve them!) are encouraged to contact our office for more information about how EOPS and NextUP can serve you!

If you’re a current or former foster youth yourself, we’d like to help make your college experience more positive and rewarding.
