The first MA Homeless Students Regional Forum for Advocates and Educators will be held on October 28 from 8:30am to 1pm, at Greenfield Community College. This is a one-of-a-kind forum, bringing together public school homeless liaisons and guidance staff, post-secondary education professionals, community service providers, and state agency representatives from the region. The goal is to continue building a strong network and best-practices framework, to facilitate seamless transitions to higher education, for students who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness and aging out of foster care.
This event is brought to you by The MA Homeless Post-Secondary Students Network, a grass-roots organization supporting homeless youth in access to public education, through advocacy and policy change. Additional logistical support is also provided by GCC, UMass Boston, and the College Access Challenge Grant.
