Foster Together Virtual Conference-Caregiving from the Other Side: Q&A Featuring Current and Former Youth in Care

November 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

FOSTER TOGETHER: Transforming Caregiving, Building Community is a five session conference series offered on Thursday mornings starting October 22nd that aims to knit together LA’s resource parents, practitioners, and County leaders into a community dedicated to the future of L.A.’s foster youth.

There is no group more important to the informing and shaping of our policy and practice than the youth who experience our care first-hand. Our final session brings us together with current and former youth in care, who will draw from their lived experience expertise to provide insight and guidance on how our system of out-of-home care helps youth thrive and succeed, where we are falling short, what needs to change, and how we can get it right. We look forward to learning from and engaging with these youth leaders as we journey forward.
