Webinar: SB 1758 and Opportunities to Serve Transitioning Youth 

NEW DATE – August 10, 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. 

Virtual Webinar

Youth in foster care need a great deal of guidance and support to make a successful transition to adulthood. The Texas Legislature recognized this in 2017 with SB 1758, which aims to support successful transitions to adulthood through efforts such as ensuring access to proper legal documents, granting earlier access to life skills training, and surveying providers for their insights on other strategies. Join TNOYS’ Director of Child Welfare Policy Dr. Katherine Byers to learn more about the current landscape of transition services, recent policy changes that impact it, initial results of the provider survey about improvements that can be made, and opportunities for providers to get involved. The webinar will conclude with a question and answer period. CEUs will be offered. Click here to register and a link to the webinar will be emailed in advance to those who have signed up.
