Training & Preparation for Youth Counts: Involving Youth, Universities, & Volunteers

3:00 PM to 4:30 PM

Young people from runaway and homeless youth services and local institutions of higher education have played important roles as both employed and volunteer contributors to both planning and implementing past efforts to count youth homelessness. They can be tremendous assets for this kind of effort. At the same time, they require well-organized training and support to ensure their safe and effective participation. This webinar will address common issues including recruitment, selection, safety, training, and payment of young people in local services and institutions of higher education to support more effective youth counts.

Presenters: Maggie Riden and Justin Rodriguez, DC Alliance of Youth Advocates


Non-grantees will have access to the recording of the event, which will be posted in the Resource Library.
