Ten Things that Youth Want Child Welfare Professionals to Know
Project LIFE, a partnership of United Methodist Family Services with and funded by Virginia Department of Social Services, held a state-wide conference on permanency in October 2013. During the conference, adopted youth and youth in foster care shared their experiences and developed their ideas into tips for child welfare workers. These resources from the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections highlight their recommendations for workers (1) when engaging youth in foster care, and (2) for talking to youth in foster care about permanency.
