Frankie Pfister: Facilitating the Transition from Street Culture to Academic Culture
This session will provide an overview of street culture and explore how the experience of homelessness impacts educational goals and post-secondary access and retention for young people. Pfister will also share her own story about achieving academic success in the face of significant challenges. For the last decade, Frankie has worked in non-profit leadership providing direct services and advocating for youth experiencing homelessness, including developing interventions to increase college access for homeless youth. Frankie has trained groups throughout the U.S. in improving outcomes for LGBTQ+ youth and preventing and ending youth homelessness. Frankie is the Director of Research at Parity NYC and teaches Developmental Psychology at Dixie State University.
