Leaders for Change is the annual conference of Foster Youth in Action (FYA), the only national organization connecting independent, grassroots youth-led groups organizing to improve the foster care system in the U.S. Seven years running, this conference held in our nation’s capital creates the unique opportunity for more than 100 foster youth and their adult allies to grow as leaders, build community, and connect with elected officials and federal administrators to advocate for change.

But it doesn’t stop there: these youth leaders don’t simply get inspired to take action – they also head home with tools and strategies to support new campaigns and engage more of their peers. They also gain an extensive network that they’ll be able to lean on for support, guidance, and advice as they do the challenging work of systemic change at both the local and state levels.
