National Affinity Group on Jewish Poverty Briefing: Focus on Higher Education

How does poverty impact access to higher education and educational success? In this webinar, we will discuss how the community can help build opportunities and networks for underserved students to support retention and success.

This is the sixth briefing in the National Affinity Group on Jewish Poverty‘s series of webinars and virtual meetups to discuss the many challenges the coronavirus pandemic has created for Jews facing poverty and the agencies that serve them. We are hearing the needs from the service providers on the ground supporting our front lines, sharing best practices and information, and strategizing on ways to respond collectively.

Each webinar is moderated by Susan Ditkoff of The Bridgespan Group Boston.
