Youth At-Risk of Homelessness (YARH2) Webinar and Roundtable Series February 08, 2021
On behalf of the Children’s Bureau (CB), Child Welfare Information Gateway and the Capacity Building Center for States are hosting a series of webinars and peer-to-peer conversations to perpetuate the learning from the Youth At-Risk of Homelessness (YARH2) grantees. CB funded the YARH multiphase grant program to build the evidence base on what works to prevent homelessness among youth and young adults who have been involved with the child welfare system.
The University of Maryland’s School of Social Work will share their lessons learned in developing and implementing the Enhanced-Youth Transition Planning (E-YTP)(opens in new window). The E-YTP model is an individualized, youth-driven, strengths-based, and team-based transition-planning process for older youth (ages 14 to 21) in foster care developed for a rural setting. For more details about the project and intervention, see the Project Summary.
You are also invited to participate in a peer-to-peer roundtable session immediately following the webinar. We will dive deeper into the successes, challenges, and outcomes of the work in a discussion with the grantee panelists and the Chafee/Educational and Training Vouchers Program peer groups.
