As part of this year's annual Foster Youth Awareness Month (#FYAM) lineup, we have developed an Ally Training for UC Merced's very own faculty and staff. This event is only offered for UCM Faculty/Staff. This is a great opportunity for UC Merced Faculty and Staff to become more aware of the issues and challenges faced by students that have experienced the foster care system and/or homelessness. The intention behind this event is to bring awareness around the foster youth and homeless communities and to share resources about how to better support our scholars. If you are not a faculty or staff, please still share this event with your professors, advisors, colleagues, supervsors, etc.
