Believe and Achieve: Bridging the Gap!
Do you work with adolescent youth with histories of trauma? Are your youth facing challenges in their educational journey? Did you know that 70-84% of youth in foster care want a college degree, but fewer than 11% actually graduate with a bachelor’s degree? This interactive online workshop focuses on adolescent development, trauma, and education-impacting challenges faced by youth living in foster care with some helpful information about challenges specific to youth of color, LGBTQ youth, and those with developmental disabilities. It provides further awareness to social workers and ideas on how to assist youth with their educational aspirations.
