For young people with experience in foster care and homelessness, these are challenges that they may face on their own. Planning for the coming school year is complicated, and young people with experience in foster care and homelessness need our assistance. Our continued advocacy can make sure they get the support they need to make important decisions and access the services and resources crucial to their success this school year. This toolkit from the Juvenile Law Center, SchoolHouse Connection, and Youth Villages contains the following elements: • Tips for Advocates and supporters of young people so advocates can provide assistance to students as they plan for the coming year. • Tips for Higher Education Institutions so institutions and their support staff can develop effective policies that are responsive to the needs of young people with experience in foster care and homelessness. • A list of general resources for students.
