About this Event

Growing up in poverty can have lasting impacts on youth and their families. It’s essential for providers working with foster youth to understand how their socioeconomic upbringing impacts their ability to understand poverty and the challenges to get out of poverty. The trainers will discuss strategies for more effectively engaging individuals and families in poverty and ways to empower them. It is imperative to understand the challenges poverty presents and to address it as it can be a risk factor for a variety of unhealthy and dangerous situations such as mental illness, gang involvement, involvement in the commercial sex industry, etc. 

The training will be co-facilitated by Nola Brantley and Nicole Klasey, Psy.D.

This training is made possible through Title IV-E funding in collaboration with Chabot-Las Positas Community College District and Lincoln and is open to providers working with Alameda County youth and young adults.
