College Access and Success for Students Experiencing Homelessness: A Toolkit for Educators and Service Providers
Our School Social Worker Coordinator sent this link out the other day. What a great resource for school counselors advocating for college access for homeless students!
This toolkit provides essential information you need when working with higher education institutions.
"The past several years have seen a heightened interest in the issue of access to higher education for students experiencing homelessness. This heightened interest is due, at least in part, to the September 2007 passing of the College Cost Reduction and Access Act, including its provisions related to unaccompanied homeless youth. As interest in the issue increased, the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth (NAEHCY) realized the need for a resource that would provide information on a variety of topics related to college access and success for homeless youth."
