Teen Connection discusses teen homelessness

(Editor’s note: We had this item yesterday, but didn’t include a broadcast time.)
Teen homelessness is the topic of the public television program Teen Connection at 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 24. During the 2007-08 school year, more than 9,000 students were homeless in the state of Wisconsin. Of those, 2,437 students (26 percent) were ninth-through-12th graders. Alison Draheim, school social worker and at-risk program coordinator for Green Bay Schools, and April Strom-Johnson, executive director of Good Samaritan Charity in DePere, will join teens on the panel. Teen Connection is co-produced by NEWIST/CESA 7, Educational Television Productions of Northeastern Wisconsin (ETPNEW) and Wisconsin Public Television. It is broadcast statewide by Wisconsin Public TV.
