On Friday, November 3, Reps. Jim Renacci (R-OH), Derek Kilmer (D-WA), Steve Stivers (R-OH), and Seth Moulton (D-MA) introduced the “Preparing Homeless Youth for Education and Employment Act,” bipartisan legislation to provide access to dropout prevention and college and career counseling services to homeless youth.
The Preparing Homeless Youth for Education and Employment Act legislation, H.R. 4234, authorizes the McKinney-Vento Act’s Education for Homeless Children and Youth program to award grants for providing dropout prevention services and college and career counseling services. These services can include counseling related to employability skills, the credits needed to graduate and pursue higher education, and exploration of post-secondary opportunities.
SchoolHouse Connection is pleased to support this legislation.
