Without the education and training needed to secure living-wage employment, young people experiencing homelessness will struggle to make a sustainable exit from homelessness. In this webinar, attendees will learn about:
- the connection between education, employment, and housing affordability outcomes, including as addressed in Home, Together: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness;
- federal education and employment programs that serve youth experiencing homelessness (McKinney-Vento Education for Homeless Children and Youth, Perkins Career and Technical Education, Adult Education, WIOA Youth Formula, YouthBuild, and Job Corps);
- policy and practice levers to encourage more targeted local efforts to ensure education and employment program access and success for young people experiencing homelessness;
- two local programs (Los Angeles and Washington, DC) that serve youth experiencing homelessness through intentional education and employment partnerships.
Time will be provided for Q&A.
