The Project

My project focuses on providing education advocacy for teens transitioning or aging out of foster care in New York City to ensure their educational and vocational needs are met with appropriate services. It provides direct representation to foster care youth and their families related to education; technical assistance to caseworkers, advocates and attorneys; and extensive community outreach and trainings on education and the law to those involved in the child welfare system.
