Learning AFAR Foster Children

No Barriers Youth and AFAR Media share a similar vision: to make the life-changing power of authentic experiential travel available to all students regardless of their social and economic background.

At any given time there are more than 425,000 kids in the foster care system and recent data indicates that more than half of the

children in U.S. foster care system are young people of color.   Furthermore, foster children face a multitude of obstacles and barriers in life and only 50% of these students graduate high school by the age of 18.

Fully Funded Expeditions

With support from AFAR Media and other generous donors, No Barriers Youth offers a fully funded annual Expedition for students who are in foster care or have been in the system previously. Selecting and working with a passionate Group Leader, No Barriers Youth selects scholarship recipients that demonstrate financial need, academic merit, and leadership potential.
