Foster Club

At FosterClub, we believe that youth in care are experts about many aspects of foster care. Acknowledging their expertise, our staff, our board, and our outreach members include young people all across America who have experienced foster care.
 
We believe that great outcomes occur when foster youth tap their amazing inner-resilience and personal power to become forces for change in the system and in their own lives.
 

We are a source of support.

We know that successfully navigating life in the foster care system can be difficult, so FosterClub’s support includes practical information about how foster care works, useful connections to resources in the youth’s community, and important guidance about how to advocate for oneself in the system and foster home. We offer emotional support by listening to concerns, connecting to peers, and inspiring with stories of role models who have emerged from foster care to lead successful lives.
 
FosterClub also provides information and support for foster parents and child welfare professionals. Input from foster youth helps supportive adults to better understandings. We also connect concerned citizens to foster care through connections to mentoring or coaching opportunities.

We are a force for change.

We put young people in care at the table to educate and influence policy makers, caregivers, child welfare professionals. We connect youth to their communities and inspire them to give something back. Hand in hand with the young people we serve, we challenge the status quo, raise public awareness, and push for necessary change in the foster care system.
 
Young people are getting a whole new perspective of themselves as responsible and empowered members of their communities.
