“No Shade”: Using Kinship Care to Bring Older Youth Into the Light
When: October 16, 2020 | 11:00am -12:30pm CST
This webinar is a part of CASCW’s 2020 “Supporting Permanency and Transitions to Adulthood for Youth in Care” webinar series. This series is brought to you in place of CASCW’s Annual Spring Conference which was canceled due to COVID-19. We hope you enjoy this adapted series of the conference content.
In this session you will learn how to prioritize kinship care within your local child welfare systems: Understanding and operationalizing the value of kinship care; learning the best practices of kinship care; and creating effective programming to support older kinship youth. When you empower older youth through dynamic kinship care programming you have the best chance to positively impact their lives and provide them stability and permanency.
