OHIO YAB will be hosting their 2nd Annual one day Youth Track at the PCSAO Conference on Thursday September 18th, 2008. This is a great opportunity for youth to be able to attend an in-state conference with national presnters. Workshops include Foster Care 411 (FosterClub), What’s Love Got to Do With It (National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancies), and Making a Difference for our Brothers and Sisters from Care (Foster Care Alumni of America). Registration is limited to 45 youth between the ages of 14 and 23 who are currently in foster care or have experienced foster care.
The registration fee is only $50 and child welfare professionals who are attending the PCSAO Conference the same day can assist with transportation! For more information about this exciting opportunity please check out the website (pages 12 &13).
Don’t let this exciting possibility pass you by—the registration deadline is August 29th, 2008.
Another thing to consider is that youth, who are members of OHIO YAB, can apply for the OHIO YAB Youth Leadership Program to have either 50% or 100% of their registration fees covered.
Feel free to pass along this great opportunity to others who may be interested.
