On November 1st, 2013, a group of powerful foster youth leaders from across the country gathered in San Francisco for our 2nd Annual Leaders for Change 2013 convening. Youth from California, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Oregon, Indiana, and Washington engaged in rigorous training with Foster Youth in Action, working together to create real change for foster youth across the country, and adding power to the work of their individual organizations through their collaboration. They also saw some beautiful sights, experienced the whirlwind of San Francisco food trucks, formed long lasting friendships and much more.
In addition, youth from each state took part in this year’s planning committee to help make important decisions and shape the way our time together was spent. This year not only did we at Foster Youth in Action do training, but we also had our partner organizations from around the country lead different trainings!
We look forward to Leaders for Change 2014!
