Connections for Life Community Workshops
Our Connections for Life workshops will increase awareness and understanding amongst youth workers in community agencies regarding the needs of young people aging out of foster care – for developing support networks and reconnecting with biological family.
By participating in our two workshops, participants will:
- Gain perspective and understanding of the need for youth to develop long term support networks as they move into their adult lives.
- Learn strategies to help youth build networks of unpaid individuals who will commit to being part of the youth’s life into the future, and;
- Understand the importance of connection to biological family, and learn strategies to help youth re-engage with their biological families in a way that is safe
