  • LISTEN to respected presenters and speakers, all who are alumni professionals from the foster care system.

Fostering Change Network Foundation (FCN Foundation) is a nonprofit organization based in the United States with a mission of providing alumni of the foster care system (locally, nationally and internationally) with resources that will support their personal and professional development and endeavors within the child welfare and social enterprise fields.

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. We will be opening up the conference to our younger brothers and sisters (ages 14-20) transitioning from foster care as well!

The last day of the conference will feature a Global Foster Care Discussion led by the first FCN Foundation Global Ambassador Cohort and will be open to guests from all fields that have worked in foster care, want to learn more about foster care or who are involved in work that overlaps with foster care.  This means our corporate, child welfare and Foundation guests, both Alumni and non-alumni are invited to attend. CEUs will also be available for foster parents and child welfare professionals in attendance.

This year's APNC plans to attract over 1,000 attendees with participation in the Global Foster Care Discussion among host sites around the world.
