NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

Addressing the Educational Needs of Children and Youth in Foster Care

School has the potential to serve as a stabilizing force for children and youth within state foster care systems. Learn how your state can create an education system to help overcome some of the barriers to success that children in care often face—such as multiple school changes, inconsistency, lack of communication and delays in enrollment—so that children have positive school experiences and successfully transition into adulthood. Join us and our first class of Child Welfare Fellows as we discuss this important topic.
