As part of the Youth Homelessness Prevention series, this virtual gathering will dive deeper on the role of the education system in preventing youth homelessness. Starting with a “state of the movement” on education-based services for children and youth at risk of or experiencing homelessness, we will hear about a new initiative that hones in on the intersection of homelessness, education, criminal-legal system, and foster care. Participants will also discuss the opportunities present for philanthropy to support services and initiatives related to education for youth and young people experiencing homelessness.
Come prepared to share your own work on this issue as applicable.
