Learn how transitioning to virtual recruitment under COVID unearthed A-HA moments that increased success. Hear how new recruitment, relationship building and support techniques are being successfully applied to generate leads and usher families through approval. ISFC recruitment and support will specifically be addressed as part of this exciting session!
Hear how our underlying attitudes unconsciously can impact our understanding, decisions, and actions, including specifically in the foster care environment. Discuss methods that help us understand these assumptions so we can better support youth and the families who care for them.
There is no group more important to the informing and shaping of our policy and practice than the youth who experience our care first-hand. Our final session brings us together with current and former youth in care, who will draw from their lived experience expertise to provide insight and guidance on how our system of out-of-home care helps youth thrive and succeed, where we are falling short, what needs to change, and how we can get it right. We look forward to learning from and engaging with these youth leaders as we journey forward.
