Tips to Get the Best Campus Data on Foster Youth

Data is an essential tool in the quest to improve college outcomes for foster youth. Data related to the educational successes and challenges of foster youth not only helps advocates and service providers to tell their story more persuasively to funders and policy makers, but is also a powerful tool in helping programs to refine services in order maximize successful outcomes. But the information that comes out of data systems is only as good as the information going in. John Burton Advocates for Youth, in partnership with Career Ladders Project and Educational Results Partnership hosted a web seminar to help campus-based foster youth support programs understand how to get to high quality data by working in collaboration with other campus departments. The webinar covered foster youth data collection strategies for college and university campuses, provided a preview of the new CalPASS Plus foster youth data dashboard and offered valuable tips and tools.
