The Educational Assistance Initiative (EAI) ProgramThe Educational Assistance Initiative (EAI) program through Family Services of Western Pennsylvania is a financial support service that helps students aging out of social service systems cover supplemental costs to their post-secondary education. Students who have come from foster care, juvenile justice, mental health, and other systems who need assistance pursuing college, vocational training, or apprenticeships utilize this program. Students submit an application to request the assistance, which is then reviewed and voted on by members of the EAI Committee. Most students submit a request for a laptop to help them in completing their schooling. The initiative can also provide assistance to cover the costs of books, transportation, uniforms, application fees, and more. Some students join the online Facebook group to keep themselves up-to-date on national and local resources and services available to help them succeed in school and in life. The goal is to connect youth and young adults to educational resources and provide assistance to facilitate educational success.
