We are now accepting nominations for the 100 young leaders from the foster care system that will be recognized and celebrated throughout 2015! Applications due Monday, December 1st.

2014 has been a monumental year for child welfare advocacy. The foster youth voice has been instrumental in passing legislation (HR 4980), raising the issue of over-medication, and improving the lives of youth in the foster care system. FosterClub is lucky to work with many young advocates who are true inspirations, and dedicated to this cause. Join FosterClub in honoring foster youth and alumni across the country who are making a difference. 

Who is eligible? Nominees must be between 16-24 years old and must have spent some time in foster care in order to be eligible.  Nominations are not open to FosterClub staff or interns (including All-Stars).
