Attendees will gain knowledge about the hidden curriculum and key skills students need in college to graduate. The discussion will also include the quickest way to develop these crucial skills. With this information, attendees can then talk about the concepts with the students they serve and be a deliberate part of the solution to improve higher education outcomes for students with foster care experience. Additionally, participants will learn about issues students experience between high school graduation and higher education matriculation so that they can be aware of, and help prevent, common problems. This session has been approved for 1 Social Work Continuing Education Credit (CEU) for the event cost of $15.
