FAN Alumni: Where are they now?

In July of 2013, FAN began an on-going data collection project to learn about how our program alumni are doing.

Program participants who are 18 and over and at least one year beyond their expected high school graduation date are considered eligible to complete the online survey. Former participants were contacted by text, email, social media, or in person and asked to complete the survey.
