The Congressional Foster Youth Shadow Program brings foster youth and policymakers to the same table. From May 22nd to May 27th, Shadow Program participants attend young leader training focusing on federal foster care policy, strategic sharing, and team building exercises. The Congressional Foster Youth Shadow Program concludes with the foster youth participants shadowing Congressional Members. This allows the youth to share their #FosterYouthVoices, giving members of Congress a well-rounded understanding of the experiences of youth in foster care, which will help as they pursue policies that impact all foster youth.
