The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) and Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center (RHYTTAC) are pleased to invite current FYSB Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Grantees to the 2021 Regional Training. These no-cost, half-day trainings will be held virtually from Monday, May 24 - Thursday, May 27, 2021.

The goal of the Regional Training is to provide grantees with opportunities to discuss current issues and trends in working with youth experiencing homelessness and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as communicating FYSB priorities to improve program outcomes and project implementation.

Grantees will:

  • Learn strategies to improve and enhance outcomes of RHY grant(s)
  • Learn strategies for effectively serving youth during the pandemic
  • Develop and strengthen partnerships with colleagues in the RHY field

Grantees are required to send at least one representative, and these trainings are not open to the public
