Description: JBAY staff will join the Alliance for Children’s Rights to present a workshop session offering an overview the existing landscape of housing options for Transition Aged Youth in California and recent developments that have created new opportunities.
Come to the workshop, presented by Jessica Petrass and learn practical online tools to assist youth with college and career planning, such as www.cacareerzone.com, Salary Surfer, and CA College Pathways. You will be able to explore some of these online tools within the session! You will have the opportunity to become more familiar with the various postsecondary education pathways, including career and technical education, and the benefits available for foster youth at California’s higher education institutions. Leave with a copy of the Foster Youth Educational Planning Guide to help youth chart a course that is in line with their interests, goals and strengths to achieve self-sufficiency.
