Funders Together to End Homelessness is excited to partner with Grantmakers for Thriving Youth on this two-part webinar series on the needs of students experiencing homelessness, foster care, and juvenile justice.
Part 1: How Can Schools and Districts Center the Needs of Marginalized Students?
As districts across the U.S. navigate how to reopen for the new school year, the needs of students who are experiencing homelessness, in foster care, or involved in the juvenile justice system are too often overlooked. The first webinar in our 2-part series will amplify the voices of youth activists and advocacy organizations as we call for school leaders, funders and other stakeholders to center the needs of the most marginalized students in this overwhelming moment.
The second webinar will address structural changes necessary to support marginalized youth and how philanthropy can catalyze progress. Date and details for the second webinar will be announced soon.
