Clearing Hurdles: How Schools Can Foster Student Success
June 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Foster youth often face many barriers that threaten their academic achievement. Join Youth Voices Rising as we explore ways school officials and staff can cultivate positive relationships with youth while they’re in high school and in college. Panelists will discuss how schools can better support foster youth and how mentorship can be effective. A probation/school police officer will present on what leads to the school-to-prison pipeline.
