Youth Fostering Change offers youth who are currently or formerly involved in the child welfare system the opportunity to evaluate the system and develop and implement a campaign that works toward reform.

Along the way, Juvenile Law Center provides essential support, ensuring that the participants develop the skills they need to succeed.
