Topics will include but not be limited to, identification of unaccompanied youth, guardianship issues, unaccompanied youth healthcare and SNAP benefits, FAFSA and beyond high school, and trauma and the youths' brain. A highlight of the day will be our unaccompanied youth panel telling their own stories, experiences and sharing their challenges.
