Mind the Gap – Larkin Street Conference on Youth Homelessness
“MIND THE GAP”: ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Mind the Gap brings together a diverse group of experts in the field to share their knowledge on issues that impact disconnected youth in order to improve service delivery for homeless youth and those at greatest risk of becoming homeless. The conference is for service providers, policymakers, advocates, funders, and anyone interested in youth homelessness. The focus is on strategies to advance practice and policy as it relates to the issue of homelessness among transition age youth. The goal is for participants to leave with new knowledge and concrete ideas to apply to their work.
Larkin Street hosted Mind the Gap: Effective Strategies for Meeting the Needs of Transition Age Youth, its first conference on youth homelessness, in January 2009. The conference attracted over 170 leaders from across California.
