Abstract

Abstract:

This study focused on college students who participated in a college campus program designed to support students who experienced foster care. Students reported their beliefs about the program's elements that provided direct student support. Data were collected during two consecutive semesters, N = 9; N = 10. The data collection tool contained both open-ended questions and questions in which responses were based on rating scales. Overall, students reported positive beliefs about the program elements. Themes of contributing to productivity and providing convenience emerged for usefulness of personal laptops. Enhancement of activities and functioning like a family resulted from comments helpful to the program. Implications relevant to partnerships, laptops, financial sustainability, and program evaluations were discussed along with ideas for future research.
