Event Details

Fostering Futures is a curriculum developed by the National Court Appointed Special Advocate Association that focuses on improving outcomes for older and emancipating youth (14–21 years of age) served by CASA/GAL volunteers. The program is designed to assist youth in a successful transition from foster care to adulthood.

Fostering Futures volunteers undergo the mandated thirty-hour CASA training program and an additional eight-hour Fostering Futures training to guide them in dealing with issues faced by transitioning youth. Fostering Futures volunteers will spend more one on one time with the youth in their cases, setting and working toward goals, assisting youth in acquiring practical knowledge, such as budgeting, setting doctor’s appointments, finding jobs and housing, and engaging in healthy relationships, how to locate and access community resources, and in general, developing knowledge and skills to facilitate a successful transition to adulthood.

The Next Fostering Futures Training will be held on:

Wednesday, June 20, 6 to 9 PM
Wednesday, June 27, 6 to 9 PM

Contact the CASA Program Managers for more information.
