Webinar: Bridging Programs - Pathways to Equity in Post-Secondary Education
This video was produced by YouthREX.
HERE'S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:
Participation in post-secondary education (PSE) enhances the quality of life and wellbeing of individuals, communities, and societies overall. Unfortunately, certain groups of young people are underrepresented in PSE. Bridging programs have the potential to respond to the many and often overlapping challenges underrepresented youth face by providing individualized and alternative pathways for entrance, persistence, and attainment of PSE credentials.
In this webinar, we engage the multiple dimensions that contribute to equitable PSE access. We review the evidence related to successfully bridging youth facing barriers into PSE, and hear about strategies for promoting equity in PSE. Youth workers interested in opportunities for engaging youth facing barriers to PSE will be interested in this webinar.
