FAFSA numbers have continued to decline due to the pandemic, creating concern that higher education is out of reach for many young people. Youth experiencing homelessness often face many barriers while filling out the FAFSA. In this interview style webinar, we'll hear how Frederick County, MD created a new initiative to pair a mentor with seniors who are experiencing homelessness in an effort to provide support to complete the FAFSA, create a post-secondary plan, and strengthen organizational skills. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about this program, how American Rescue Plan Homeless Children and Youth funds can be used to build similar programs, and ask questions.
