Request for Workshop Proposals - Passport to Careers State Conference
April 28-29, 2020
Greater Tacoma Convention Center
Workshop proposals are due by March 11, 2020
The annual Passport to Careers State Conference provides opportunities for professionals and other supportive adults to:
1. Connect and network with others who support students from foster care and/or unaccompanied homelessness in graduating from high school and pursuing their postsecondary aspirations;
2. Share best practices aimed at improving the educational outcomes of students from foster care and/or unaccompanied homelessness;
3. Acquire skills, knowledge, and resources that advance professional development and enhance program impact;
4. Inspire one another with stories of success and ideas for innovation.
Washington State’s Passport to Careers Program is designed to strengthen the postsecondary educational pipeline for students who have experienced foster care and/or unaccompanied homelessness. The Washington Student Achievement Council administers the program and partners with the College Success Foundation (CSF) to implement the Passport to College component of the program. CSF provides backbone support for the Washington Passport Network (WPN). The WPN is a statewide collective impact initiative committed to supporting students from foster care and unaccompanied homeless youth and the adult professionals they rely on.
The primary audience at the conference is made up of professionals who support the educational pursuits of young adult students who have experienced foster care and/or unaccompanied homelessness.
This includes student support and financial aid staff from 2-year, 4-year and technical colleges; apprenticeship programs; K-12 foster care district liaisons and McKinney Vento liaisons; independent living service providers; staff representing foster care educational advocacy organizations (e.g. Treehouse and SETuP); and employees of state agencies. Other attendees include funders, policymakers, dedicated volunteers, and students.
