SEASIDE Recently, members of the National Resource Center for Youth Development and the Childrens Bureau visited Seasides FosterClub All-Stars.
The FosterClub All-Star program will continue, and will offer internships for 20 young people from the foster care system. All-Stars become the face of FosterClub and the role models of their younger peers all across America.
In addition to participating in a large number of nationwide events for youth and child welfare professionals over the summer, the FosterClub All-Stars will provide trainings, advocate for system improvement and promote public awareness nationally throughout the year and teach other youths, adults and child welfare professionals in their states, youth boards and homes how to advocate for themselves and the youths in care.
By visiting Seaside and speaking directly to the 2013-14 FosterClub All-Stars, the NRCYD and the Childrens Bureau hope to be better informed and prepared to meet the needs to children in care, organizers said.
