Current and former foster youth are invited to join the National Foster Youth Institute’s 2023 Virtual Congressional Convening featuring special guests and members of Congress.

This virtual gathering fosters dialogue, collaboration, and advocacy to support foster youth nationwide. The primary goal of this convening is to address critical issues related to foster youth, foster care policies, and the challenges faced by young people in the foster care system. It aims to raise awareness, promote positive change, and foster meaningful discussions among attendees. Join us for this two-day event!
