On Saturday, December 2, First Star ASU held a kickoff event for our foster youth students and their families. An Arizona State University student panel welcomed First Star youth and presented their stories on how they ended up at the university as well as sharing their insights as former youth themselves. From there, the youth and their caregivers participated in a Q & A related to the college readiness programming and finally, the foster youth took part in a breakout session to share more about themselves and get to know one another. To end the day, First Star ASU youth and families attended the ASU women’s basketball game and witnessed a winning game. First Star ASU was honored to have Tracy Mazuer, First Star board member present to provide her insights and love for the First Star program.
