The 2021 Embark Georgia Leadership Conference is going virtual! We hope each of you will join us over 3 consecutive mornings to hear from state and national practitioners sharing what they have encountered throughout the pandemic and how they are moving forward to serve students who experience foster care and homelessness. Each day will run for approximately 2 hours and will include an opening session with national and state leaders, followed by breakout room options, and will conclude with reflections and opportunities to network.
Day 1: Statewide Focus
The opening day of the conference focuses on statewide strategies and success. The breakout sessions include representation from statewide organizations, non-profits, and campus support programs.
Day 2: National Focus
The second day of the conference focuses on best practices from other states, national policies updates, and youth voice. You have an opportunity to connect with programs and organizations from across the country who specifically support youth experiencing foster care and homelessness in postsecondary educational settings.
Day 3: Research and Promising Practices Focus
The final day of the conference centers on new and emerging research focused on higher education and experiences of young people from foster and homeless backgrounds. The concluding reflection is one you won’t want to miss!
Date and Time: May 24 – 26, 2021 from 8:45 to 11:30 a.m. each day.
