Too often, older youth in foster care lag behind their peers when it comes to educational attainment. Social workers can explore a range of education supports for youth transitioning out of foster care. The webinar will provide social workers with a broad landscape of what young people aging out of foster care are facing, what communities nationwide are doing, and how they can help foster youth access higher education opportunities.
