Feedback form is now closed.
An unaccompanied youth in a homeless situation may need a home, but what they need most of all is a caring adult who knows what they are going through, what those youths rights under the law are and what resources are available to them. It is our hope that today's objectives will assist you in providing services to these very vulnerable youth. Co-presenting will be a formally unaccompanied youth that was in a homeless situation all through high school. Objectives: • Participants will learn the definition and rights (under the federal McKinney- Vento Law) of unaccompanied homeless youth. (UHY) • Participants will increase their awareness of the why unaccompanied homeless youth are a growing population and the challenges they face. • Participants will become familiar with research and data related to the plight of unaccompanied homeless youth. • Participants will become familiar with resources available to assist unaccompanied homeless youth.
