6 Steps Counties Can Take to Protect Youth in THP-Plus During the COVID-19 Crisis

Description: Approximately 459 more youth participating in Transitional Housing Program-Plus (THP-Plus) will reach the maximum age or program duration this year, facing exit from the program during the public health crisis and economic recession. This web seminar will outline six steps counties can take to extend THP-Plus housing and services or access alternative housing resources to support youth during the crisis, so they do not exit THP-Plus at risk of homelessness and without a safe place to shelter in place and practice social distancing.

WEBINAR

Boots on the Ground: Practitioner Approved Postsecondary Resources and Tools

Description:As the academic year gives way to summer, students weigh their postsecondary options with uncertainty in light of the pandemic. Already, the field has seen a 20% drop in enrollment, with higher rates among students of color. In addition, 32% of students of color say it is unlikely or uncertain that they will return to college this fall.* As the fallout of COVID-19 threatens to keep campuses in partial or complete lockdown for the remainder of 2020, students find they are in greater need for support than ever before.

This session will feature three organizations that are building inroads toward a better future for postsecondary students who are at higher risk. Featured speakers will share information gathered from students, challenges they anticipate in providing supportive services and where unmet need remains.

While others are welcome to attend, this event is intended for members and education grantmakers. There is no cost to attend this Grantmakers for Education program.
