We are very pleased and excited to announce the launching of our Foster Youth Ally Training!
Why a Foster Youth Ally Training? More and more foster youth are entering higher education. It is critical to understand what it means to be a current/former foster youth, the impact of their experiences, and ways to support their goals of achieving a 4-year degree.
Who should attend a Foster Youth Ally Training?
- University administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders that work with students that may have experienced foster care or want to learn more about supporting foster youth on our campus
- University administrators, faculty and staff that are interested in being a mentor in the Guardian Scholars Program. Starting Fall 2019, all new mentors MUST have attended a Foster Youth Ally Training before attending a Mentor Training. Two trainings are offered this quarter, 1-2 will be offered in Spring Quarter, 1 training will be offered during the summer.
- University administrators, faculty, and staff that want to become a Friend of the Guardian Scholars Program.
