Kelsey Foster joined Foundation for a College Education as the College Bound Program Coordinator in September 2020. A Bay Area native, Kelsey graduated from Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto in 2015. From there, she went on to receive her Bachelors of Arts in Sociology from UCLA where she worked extensively with the Pacific Islander Education and Retention project to increase access to higher education within the Pacific Islander community through community outreach with youth of the greater Los Angeles area. Upon graduating from UCLA in 2019, Kelsey supported students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at CSU East Bay, but maintained her passion for community outreach and youth development. Kelsey is excited to return to East Palo Alto and support the youth and their families on their own journeys to and through college.
