Foster Youth Services 101
Calling all SFCASA advocates! Join Shira Andron, coordinator for SF Unified School District Foster Youth Services, and Gloria Anthony-Oliver, HSA education social worker, to enhance your understanding of the education rights specific to youth in foster care. Shira and Gloria will cover school of origin, access to transportation, and all of the ways in which a CASA can collaborate with the foster youth services in their youth’s district.
Learning firsthand from the head of foster youth education services in SF, as well as a social worker who specifically supports the education of out of county youth, is an invaluable experience. Make sure to come prepared with questions!
The FYS 101 Training will be held on Monday, August 19 from 6-8pm in the SFCASA Training Space located at 2533 Mission Street. Participants will receive 2 hours of CE credit. Email [email protected] to RSVP for this training.
