Leaders For Change 2013







In August 2012, foster youth from all across the United States gathered in California at a conference sponsored by the National Foster Youth Action Network (now Foster Youth in Action) and California Youth Connection. The youth received training from experienced young adult trainers, all of whom have a personal history with living in foster care, leadership development, public speaking and self-empowerment.
This inaugural Leaders for Change conference brought together 30 youth leaders, all selected by their peers, who represented our state program partners in California, Indiana, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Oregon, and Washington.
