$5.00 | CE Hours:1.00 | Intermediate

 

CEU Course Description

Youth transitioning out of foster care and into adulthood need many supports to navigate the challenges they face.  This CEU course focuses on the programs that aim to promote asset building and financial literacy.  It explains why these programs are important, suggests a way to think about the types of existing programs, and summarizes what is known about their effects.  It then discusses the need to build an evidence base for these types of initiatives in the context of independent living programs and explores some next steps for moving toward that goal.
