Crystal is speaking at
The Nebraska Children and Families Foundation and the Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD) in Los Angeles are partners of the Annie E. Casey Foundation Learn and Earn to Achieve Potential (LEAP) initiative to serve foster, justice-involved and homeless youth across a K-12 to post-secondary to career continuum. These programs utilize a holistic approach that encompasses best practices focused on collaboration, centralized navigation of support and services, strength-based wrap-around support and coaching, youth engagement and leadership, and financial capability strategies. We will share approaches for supporting your work through meaningful collaboration between community-based, public system, and postsecondary partners and practical strategies that you can replicate in your own community.
