Webinar presented by John Burton Advocates for Youth
Combating Summer Melt Amid a Pandemic
Date: July 16, 2020
Time: 9:30-10:45 AM PST
Summer is a crucial time for foster youth transitioning from high school to college. Even in normal times, large numbers of foster youth who intended to go to college do not arrive for the first day of class, a phenomenon known as "summer melt." In the midst of a pandemic that will almost certainly result in most campuses continuing to offer primarily online learning opportunities, the risk of foster youth losing sign of their academic goals is greater than ever.
This webinar will offer concrete suggestions for how adult supporters can support foster youth to stay on track with their college plans during these crucial months. Topics covered will include strategies for managing mental health needs, securing housing access, and navigating the nuts and bolts of matriculation.
