Description

Creating Pathways from Youth Incarceration to Higher Education

Co-Hosted by Youth Law Center and Los Angeles Mission College

Funded by a grant from The California Wellness Foundation.


Please join the California Pathways to Higher Education Steering Committee* for the second annual Creating Pathways from Youth Incarceration to Higher Education Conference to increase postsecondary education opportunities for young people impacted by the juvenile justice system.

This conference will provide participants with a road map for how to:

  • Develop higher education programs to serve youth on and off campus with a goal of keeping youth in/returning youth to their communities with post-secondary education as an anchor
  • Provide holistic resources, supports and advocacy to help youth succeed in college
  • Collaborate across agencies to address institutional barriers
  • Start, fund, evaluate, and sustain college programs for youth

Participants will share information through:

  • Discussions with juvenile justice impacted college students
  • Presentations from agency and community leaders about successful programs
  • Panels on effective practices and partnerships
  • Networking across a wide range of organizations doing this work

Registration to the conference is complimentary. Please register if you plan on attending! Space is limited.

Doors for the event will open at 8am. Breakfast and lunch will be provided free of charge. Parking is free and available on campus. Hotels are located in Burbank, CA.

We encourage communities to bring a team including colleagues from local community colleges and state universities, probation, the county office of education, community-based organizations, advocacy groups, and young people who have had juvenile justice system involvement.

We look forward to having you join us to ensure youth impacted by the juvenile justice system can achieve their highest education goals!
