Providing Critical Support for Students from Special Populations, including Students Pursuing Gender Nontraditional CTE Programs

Description: Members of “Special Populations” as designated by Perkins V have many adverse forces that serve as determinants of success including poverty, homelessness, single motherhood, physical and mental health struggles, etc. Additionally, intersections of these forces with gender, race, ethnicity, ability and nativity status may intensify vulnerability and further limit access to opportunity structures and pathways to success. This webinar (a) examines the implications of the intersections of different socio-economic forces in the lives of members of “Special Populations”; (b)explores effective institutional models that provide critical support to members of this population to ensure that those adverse forces do not interfere with student success; and (c) share innovative strategies and best practices to increase the effectiveness of institutional outreach and active engagement of this population in Career and Technical Education.
