No fee.

We invite young people who have experienced foster care and adoption, adoptive and foster parents, and leaders interested in child welfare advocacy to join us to learn how personal stories can be powerful advocacy tools. This session will cover why personal stories can make a difference and best practices for telling or writing your own stories to achieve system change. We’ll also discuss how groups and agencies can plan for parent and youth advocacy efforts while also preparing and supporting their advocates.

Presented by Kayla VanDyke, NACAC youth engagement coordinator, and Mary Boo, NACAC executive director.

Register here. If you cannot attend the live session, register and you’ll receive the recorded version.
