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.
