Although college students are usually considered adults, their success in many ways is dependent on an effective support system, often provided by their families. Yet many youth in foster care and homeless situations lack both family support and access to additional educational opportunities. In an effort to fill that gap for students who age out of the foster care system or are experiencing homelessness, Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) created the Next Step program. This program provides students with the necessary assistance to navigate many practical issues regarding housing, academic support, and campus life. This webinar will introduce MTSU’s program manual, written to help post-secondary schools navigate the challenges of establishing a single point of contact for homeless and foster youth.
