Lead the efforts of young people in and from foster care to become connected, educated, inspired and represented so they can realize their personal potential and contribute to a better life for their peers.
We believe that young people in and from foster care deserve to be:
CONNECTED to a peer support network and to people in the community who care.
EDUCATED about their rights, how the foster care system works, self-advocacy strategies, and how to locate resources to help them succeed.
INSPIRED and empowered through the stories of people who have succeeded after foster care.
REPRESENTED by having their voices heard by policymakers, the public, and others who influence the system that profoundly impacts their lives.
We envision a day when every young person who experiences foster care has what they need to thrive.
The national network for youth in foster care.
Built for youth. Powered by youth. Changing life in foster care.

FosterClub is committed to providing the tools, training and a forum to help young people secure a brighter future for themselves and the foster care system.
