This webinar features presentations on the education sector’s role in preventing and ending youth homelessness. The presentations will explore student experiences of homelessness followed by discussing the education sector’s role in responding to youth at-risk of homelessness and school disengagement. Highlights from three school-based early intervention projects, Duty to Assist, The Upstream Project and Youth Reconnect, will be showcased as emerging examples of youth homelessness prevention responses. We encourage anyone who is interested in the wellbeing of students to join us on this webinar!
