We invite you to be a part of the 2011 California Foster Youth Education Summit: Cradle to College & Career. Come network, learn from your peers and hear directly from alumni of foster care about the critical issues, supports, and collaboration necessary to ensure success in education and in life.
This energizing annual event is for educators, county teams and the many professionals who share a common passion to support youth in care along the entire educational continuum — from cradle to college and career:
We will be providing a limited amount of scholarships for youth to attend the Summit.
