Supporting College Transition for Homeless Youth
Welcome to the Supporting College Transition for Homeless Youth course. This course prepares those who work with youth in K-12 systems to assist them to successfully transition into college.
Our course is comprised of seven modules, each covering a different topic that will help interested stakeholders set students up for success as they transition from high school to the next phase of the educational journey. Some modules will include a quiz or activity to help you apply the knowledge discussed and set you up to be prepared to support homeless youth with the next steps after graduation.
Who this course is for:
- K-12 homeless student liaisons, school counselors, community-based partners
