Fostering the Future is a student-led, inter-professional service learning initiative at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC). This organization was created by the College of Nursing graduating class of 2015 in an effort to help youth in the foster care system gain independence through knowledge, especially as it pertains to their own health and healthcare options.
We aim to provide quality resources, which meet the needs of youth currently in, or "phasing out" of Omaha's foster care system. Support is provided through education, mentorship, need-based donations and lasting relationships.

We have several opportunities to get involved through community partners, including:
- Traditional Mentoring
- Mentoring for Females

- Employment Workshops
- Health Expo
- Holiday activities
- Long-term relationship building
- Annual Blanket Project
