Fostering Futures Training
April 21, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Attention Advocates and Peer Coordinators: If you’re on a case with a youth age 14-21 or planning to take a case in the future serving a teen, then Fostering Futures is for you!
Fostering Futures benefits your casework and provides tools to help our young people when transitioning toward independence. Foster teens struggle with decision making, support systems, healthy emotional and social attachments, and are at high risk for poverty, homelessness, victimization, criminal involvement, low educational achievement, and more. The Fostering Futures program engages youth ages 14-21 and is intended to reverse these trends and improve outcomes as they prepare to leave the child welfare system.
In the words of our Advocates and PCs: “This training is a must for every advocate assigned to a teen.” “The Fostering Futures training opened my eyes in so many ways.” “I now have so many tools and resources and I feel much more confident about what I can do.”
There are two components of training:
- A Self-Paced Online Component to be completed before April 21, 2018 (2-4 hrs)
- In-Class Training: Saturday, April 21, 2018, 8:30am – 5:00pm (7.5 hrs)
Breakfast will be provided and lunch will be on your own.
The In-Class Training will be held at the CASA office located at 418 South Weber Street, Colorado Springs.
Please register by Friday, April 6th to Janet Stoddard, JanetS@casappr.org (719) 286-0846. Information on training binders and online instructions will be sent to you by April 9th.
