Core Practice Model: Supporting Post-Secondary Educational Success within a Housing Milieu

The Core Practice Model was designed for housing providers participating in “Beyond the Safety Net,” a two-year initiative led by John Burton Advocates for Youth to transform housing providers into college success programs. This tool is intended for service providers who work with transition-age youth who may lack supportive adult role models to assist them with applying for and enrolling and persisting in post-secondary education, such as current and former foster or probation youth and homeless youth. It includes recommendations in eight practice areas to improve a provider’s capacity to support post-secondary educational success within a housing milieu.
