  • Education

    Hi, im currently 12 years old and me and my two friends have had it hard for a bit and we plan on running away in two years or so. My oldest friend is going to get a job in a year and me and my other friend are going to get jobs with a family friend but what were mainly concerned about is how to get a good education. Is there any way for us to get an education as runaways?

    Hi there,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email or bulletin for assistance. If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.
    Generally you can still attend school as a runaway/homeless youth. The McKinney-Vento act guarantees homeless youth a way to still attend their school. The hard part might be enrolling or doing things in school that usually require parent permission. There might be ways around this but it is something to keep in mind.
    If you have more questions our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); (click on the chat button).
    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
    We hope to hear from you soon.
    Be safe, NRS
