Welcome Home

The Fostering Change Network Foundation and The Fostering Terp Success Program at The University of Maryland College Park are teaming up to present the 2019 Alumni Powerhouse Networking Conference (APNC), taking place June 15th-16th at the University of Maryland, College Park.

The purpose of the APNC is to bring adults who have experienced the foster care system from across the country to a safe and supportive space where they can promote their business endeavors, get feedback from other alumni on how to build and expand their businesses (and non-profits) as well as connect professionally and personally with other adult professionals from foster care.
