Getting Connected at the APNC 2019

 
 

YOU ARE THE REASON WE’RE HERE

 Foster Care Youth are guided to everything but how to live successful healthy lives. There is a life outside of the system that many foster youth are not prepared for, due to a lack of attention and investment in their growth. Success is measured differently for everyone, and because we are foster care alumni we know that extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary connections to be successful.

The Alumni Powerhouse Networking Conference & Fostering Terp Success welcomes current and transitioning foster youth, alumni, and child welfare professionals to connect with each other and resources curated to grow perspectives, education experiences, and professional development.

Join us on September 21st at The University of Maryland Adele H. Stamp Student Union.
