As homelessness in the “Golden State” intensifies, the number of homeless students continues to rise. While the definition of “homeless” varies, it often includes those residing in shelters or cars, doubling up with other families or living on the street. Homelessness also has far-reaching consequences on academic achievement: It really undermines a student’s ability to do well in school. Their grades often suffer, and with lower test scores and overall, their chances of graduating are slimmer. They can barely escape their conditions of poverty long enough to complete their degrees.
What is Stride4Life? Stride4Life with Educational Impact is a TEAM fundraising event where each college and the district office compete to reach a set fundraising goal to support Student Life Initiatives and Employee Wellness initiatives.
