The Project

Foster youth with learning difficulties are often denied appropriate special education services. Academic failure and behavioral problems put them in jeopardy of “crossing over” to the juvenile delinquency system where they drop out of school and face unemployment, homelessness and incarceration. I will advocate within the schools and juvenile courts to identify at-risk youth and ensure services are secured; caregivers and stakeholders are trained; and systemic change is informed.
