Savannah State University is launching a child care assistance program, Boost, for student-parents.
Boost was initially created by the non-profit organization Quality Care for Children (QCC) and adopted by SSU with the purpose of assisting student-parents with the financial burden of early childhood education while obtaining their undergraduate degree.
Savannah State’s student-parents have already been introduced to other similar non-profit organizations including the Student Adults with Little Tots organization (SALT) whose sole purpose is to assist student parents with the challenges of being a student-parent and obtaining their degree.
Salt’s President Alysha Wright she said she felt “really good” about the new program and that now it’s “just a matter of spreading the word” so that students can benefit.
The Qualifications for Boost at Savannah State University are as listed
- Georgia resident
- Enrolled at SSU full time
- 2.0 GPA
