FosterClub is the national network for young people in foster care. Currently, there are about 400,000 young people in foster care in across America. FosterClub is their club — a place to turn for advice, information, and hope.
FosterClub's mission is to 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.
They 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
EDUCATEDabout their rights, 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 policy makers, the public, and others who influence the system that profoundly impacts their lives
