February 7, 2019

This legislative session, John Burton Advocates for Youth is co-sponsoring SB 150 (Beall) with LA Area Chamber of Commerce to strengthen the Chafee Education and Training Voucher program by speeding up the distribution of awards and replacing its existing Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirement with one that is more flexible and takes into account the unique circumstances of foster youth. This webinar provided background information that explains the impetus for the legislation, outlined specifically what the bill will do, and walked through the necessary steps required to turn the bill into law.
