Conference: Los Angeles

What’s Sex Got to Do with It?: Healthy Sexual Development to Improve Outcomes for Youth in Foster Care

Description: Join LA RHEP to obtain tools and practical strategies to support healthy sexual development for youth in foster care.  The conference is organized into three content tracks. The “Head” workshops will focus on the policies in place in LA County that mandate access to reproductive health services for foster youth, and take a look at the disparate health outcomes among this population. The “Heart” workshops will center the voices of youth, allowing conference attendees to hear directly from young people in the foster system about the effects of reproductive health services on their lived experience. The “Hands” workshops will center on actionable steps advocates can take to support the reproductive health of foster youth in Los Angeles.

Webinar

State Tax Credit Puts Cash into the Pockets of California’s Most Vulnerable Transition-Age Youth

Description: For the 2018 tax year, California expanded an important state program to the roughly three million transition-age youth in California, age 18 to 24. When they file their 2018 income taxes, they may be eligible for the California Earned Income Tax (CaEITC), regardless of whether or not they have a child. Prior to the policy change, an individual aged 18 to 24 was not eligible for the CA EITC unless they were a parent. This webinar will discuss this expansion and address commonly asked questions transition-age youth may have about how to access this important benefit.

Webinar

Bridging the Gap: Connecting College Campuses to the Youth Homelessness Response System

Description: Each year the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development directs over $500 million to California to address homelessness via 43 local Continuums of Care (CoCs). CoCs coordinate local providers working to combat homelessness, yet there is too often a disconnect between college students facing homelessness and access to services administered by these entities. This webinar will familiarize the post-secondary education sector with the homelessness response system and how to assist students in accessing it.
