Education Reach for Texans Conference June 1-2 & Regional Breakout Opportunity

The 2021 Education Reach for Texans Conference will be held virtually on June 1-2.

While CASA programs are welcome to attend the entire conference, Education Reach is specifically asking for all CASA programs to send one staff member to participate in the Regional Breakout Sessions on June 2, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. In these sessions, staff will work together with other stakeholders to discover how they can support higher education access and success for students who have experienced foster care. CPS Education Specialists, CASA, representatives from technical schools and universities, transition centers, and local judges and attorneys will come to the table to support educational attainment for youth in foster care and to develop strategic plans for how to better serve young adults in their postsecondary education.

The conference officially begins June 1 at 1:00 p.m. with a Foster Care Liaison training. On June 2, the conference kicks off at 10:00 a.m. with a COVID-19 and legislative update, followed by a session for developing an intentional environment for those who have experienced trauma.
