November Youth Advocacy Caucus Meeting

On Tuesday, November 30th, from 1 -3 pm, join fellow advocates across the state for rich conversation and networking as our fall youth caucus meeting will showcase three speakers. ODVN is pleased to shine the light on two of Ohio’s advocates and member programs, along with updating you on ODVN’s newest resources. Our topics will include:

• Karen Montgomery from the DV Shelter in Mansfield. Karen will present her group work activities for youth called “Financial Empowerment with Youth: Social and Emotional Learning.” Karen created this program during her AmeriCorp service. She will weave in aspects “teaching” youth about finances within the context of social and emotional learning.
• Alyssa Norman from Someplace Safe in Warren will share successful tips on accessing McKinney Vento services for youth and their education while residing in a shelter or hotel program. Alyssa will offer practical ways to engage your McKinney Vento liaisons to bolster youth’s educational experiences. Understanding and utilizing McKinney Vento federally funded services are essential to serving families as they navigate safety while youth receive an education.
