Strategies to Support Smooth Transitions to Higher Education

Replay the Webinar:

The transition from high school to higher education can be daunting, especially for youth experiencing homelessness or with experience in foster care. These students may have developed strong relationships with high school staff, including liaisons, counselors, or teachers, but aren’t connected with anyone on the postsecondary side. This webinar highlights Georgia’s EMBARK program and Kennesaw State University and participants will learn strategies for how K12 and higher education partners can support active recruitment of homeless and foster youth, and help ease the transition. Specific topics include how K12 systems can support college transition with ARP ESSER and ARP-HCY funds, as well as how to build partnerships, summer bridge programs, and campus support programs.
