CHampions Aspiring to Make Pathways to Success – CHAMPS (formerly the Transition to Independence Program, or TIP), is an evidence-informed college access and retention program for youth ages 18-26 who have aged out of the child welfare system or juvenile justice system and are enrolled at Wayne State University. The CHAMPS Program in the WSU School of Social Work exists to increase college access and improve the graduation rates of youth with foster care and juvenile justice history in Southeast Michigan.
- CHAMPS helps youth who have aged out of the foster care or juvenile justice system realize their educational aspirations.
- Current CHAMPS students can get connected with the resources and support they need to succeed in college.
- WSU students who have aged out of the foster care or juvenile justice system are invited to learn how CHAMPS can support them.
