Our approach


FosterClub’s approach is to engage and empower those who have the most at stake in transforming the foster care system: young people themselves.  FosterClub creates and connects young people from foster care with unique tools and programs, and engages young people to transform life for themselves, their peers, and to ultimately improve the child welfare system. 

Our work


Training & Education

We offer a series of training events and curriculum for both youth in foster care and foster parents. 

Outreach & Peer Support

We have a team of dedicated folks that spend all day reaching out to youth to help them get the help they need to be successful.

Young Leaders

FosterClub's young leaders, each with lived experience in the child welfare system, are working together to support one another and transform foster care.

Public Policy & System Change

We are  changing the system at it's core. We have dedicated people working to ensure that there is policy in place the protect our nation's youth.
