Annual success and achievement recognition

Applications are open until December 7, apply now!

The FosterClub Outstanding Young Leaders is an annual recognition program aimed at celebrating the success and achievements of young people who have experienced foster care.

Over the past 18 years, we have worked with countless young people from the foster care system who are true inspirations. These youth have persevered through challenging circumstances and are now finding different ways to give back to their community and disprove negative stereotypes about foster kids.

Who is eligible?

Young people must be aged 14 to 26 years old and must have spent some time in foster care in the United States. We are looking to celebrate and recognize young people who are engaged in local, state or national community service or advocacy. This could include activities such as youth boards, advisory committees, volunteering and service leadership.

What do you receive?

  • Certificate of achievement
  • Recognition on FosterClub.org
  • Possible leadership opportunities
  • Possible media and press coverage
  • A great addition to a resume!

How do I apply?

Young people who are nominated and meet the eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply to be recognized for the Outstanding Young Leader Award!
