A College and Career Readiness Program for Adolescents in Foster Care – Sep 23
Little is known about foster care adolescents’ readiness to engage in post-secondary education, their developmental needs during their college transition, and ways professionals can offer assistance (Unrau et al., 2012). A 10-week college and career readiness intervention program entitled, Students That Are Reaching Success (S.T.A.R.S.), was conducted for a study that addressed individual participants’ college and career readiness self-efficacy. S.T.A.R.S. was designed to prepare participants for post-secondary education options and career decision-making post-high school. The results of this study and its implications for both counseling and higher education professionals and researchers working with adolescents aging-out of foster care will be shared. The presenter will be Dr. Regina Gavin Williams (North Carolina Central University School of Education).
Date and Time: Thursday, September 23, 2021, 3:00-4:00 PM ET via Zoom
