This study examined the relationship between culture and education among African American males who were likely to age out of foster care. This study measured the importance of religion, involvement in social groups in the community, belief in strong family ties, an understanding of one's ethnicity and the importance of education has on African American males in foster care. Participants of this study were comprised of 137 youth in foster care ages 14-20, that were selected utilizing non-probability convenience sampling among the target population. The findings of this study indicated that the minority (27 .0 percent) youth in foster care did not believe that culture and education was important. However, the majority (73.0 percent) of the respondents indicated they believed that culture and education was important.
