Frankie Pfister: Facilitating the Transition from Street Culture to Academic Culture

Frankie is the Director of Research at Parity, a Manhattan-based non-profit and someone who experienced homelessness as a student. In this role, she partners with young people, to assess need, then use art and advocacy to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ young people. Frankie also trains groups nationally on street culture and youth homelessness and is currently interviewing young people experiencing homelessness in a study exploring how we create home and meaning during difficult times. This session will be an overview of street culture and how the experience of homelessness impacts educational goals and post-secondary access and retention for young people.
