Mockingbird Leadership 2014-8400Culture of Foster Care

Despite their incredible diversity of personal stories, youth in care are connected by a common culture cultivated by shared experiences. This youth led, interactive training is designed to help attendees build empathy through exposure to some of the common challenges of being caught in the midst of a broken system. Without shying away from addressing real and often traumatic challenges, youth facilitators also provide their insight on best practices that have helped them beat the odds and thrive.
