FosterClub has a variety of programs aimed at accomplishing our mission:

FosterClub.com Our Website serves as our primary communication tool with young people. Built on a dynamic social network platform using Web 2.0 functionality, it provides a means for young people to connect in a safe, monitored environment. The website also serves as a hub of information relating to foster care, including articles, q+a, message boards, contests, discussion of foster care topics, and even biographies of famous people who grew up in care. It’s the resource that's available to youth 24/7. Learn more...

Publications
Our Publications are developed specifically for kids in care and are written in collaboration with foster youth. The Reach for the Stars series features famous former foster youth. The fyi3 series includes books, posters, and forms specifically designed for youth transitioning out of care. Learn more...

Training Events
Events, including teen conferences and workshops, have become popular FosterClub offerings. We tailor our events to your needs. Whether 3 hours or 3 days, we provide your youth with informative and engaging educational events. Learn more...

All-Star Internship
The FosterClub All-Star program was founded on the belief that youth who have successfully transitioned from foster care to responsible young adulthood are best suited to impact the transition of their younger peers. For the past several years FosterClub has been providing a way for young leaders to reach out to other youth through conferences, trainings and events. Learn more...

FosterClub Network
Youth Boards across the nation can connect and collaborate to leverage their voices, build the capacity of their members, and create better public awareness and community connections. Their combined efforts form a network which ultimately improves life for kids in foster care. Learn more...

FosterClub:Connect
The phenomenon of “social networks” on the internet has demonstrated how technology provides new and highly effective tools which keep people connected. It’s made it possible to network and communicate in ways not previously imagined. We’ve harnessed this power and now allow state foster care programs to access young people through FosterClub.com.

Below is a testimony from a FosterClub member:

WOULD IT BE FAIR TO SAY THAT FOSTERCLUB HAS CHANGED MY LIFE?

When I think back... I joined with my sister in April of 04... I'd just had a failed placement... One of my longest placements had become unsafe and I had to be moved. That home was really tough, but I'd grown to love them, they were as much my family as anyone else... and then they were gone. I was 17, leaving for college in a few months... Foster Care was catching up... I thought no one cared, I thought that I didn't stand a chance. And then, bam! FosterClub. I learned about Youth Boards and advocating... I talked to other foster kids who had succeeded. I discovered that the future was cloudy... but not scary. And then the AllStar program... I changed. And FosterClub helped me. I grew up... strong instead of weak, active instead of passive. FosterClub took me through the roughest period of my life... and I'm okay. So thanks FosterClub... it's been a blast!!
