Leaders for Change is the nation’s only foster youth conference bringing together state-based youth-led groups representing tens of thousands of their peers across the US. In 2015, we will welcome at least 60 youth leaders ages 14-24 from at least fourteen different states to:

  • BUILD vital leadership skills
  • FORGE new relationships with peers who share common interests & life experiences
  • SWAP lessons about recent state-level legislative & systems change campaigns
  • CREATE a common agenda to improve outcomes for youth in care
  • LEARN about federal policy and advocacy
  • CONNECT with federal policy makers & other child welfare stakeholders on priority issues
