Maryland CASA is excited to host its Second Annual Foster Youth Summit on Saturday, June 18th at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. The goal of this one day event is to equip young adults (ages 14-21) who are exiting the foster care system and entering adulthood with the resources and tools necessary to thrive.
At last year’s summit:
Julie (age 15) walked away with knowledge on how to open her own bank account and avoid nasty credit card debt.
Aaron (age 18) posed for a headshot photo to use while marketing himself on LinkedIn.
Robert (age 20) learned what healthcare options he has a foster youth.
Ashley (age 17) found out how she could attend an in-state college absolutely FREE!
You can be an integral part in helping more older foster youth like Julie, Aaron, Robert, and Ashley by becoming a Youth Sponsor. For just $25.00 you can sponsor a youth to attend the event at no cost!
