Partnerships for Success – Case Studies in Collaboration Between Child Welfare and Higher Education

With the extension of foster care to age 21 allowing more foster youth to attend college, the need for strong partnerships between child welfare agencies and institutions of higher education is greater than ever. John Burton Advocates for Youth has released a new report that provides a snapshot of six regions that boast successful collaboration between child welfare professionals, K-12 systems and local colleges and universities. By working together, these communities have discovered innovative approaches to improving educational outcomes for foster youth. On this webinar representatives from K-12 systems, colleges, child welfare agencies and community based organizations shared about how counties both small and large have been able to come together to leverage resources, share knowledge and promote a common agenda.
