About this organization








We aim to transform the child welfare system by building a national grassroots movement led by foster youth and their families. Truly transformative foster care reform will not come to fruition unless the individuals who have personal experience are leading the effort to develop and design needed policy change and programs.


National Foster Youth Institute hosts a Congressional Foster Youth Shadow Day, providing an opportunity for current and former foster youth to share their stories with policymakers. Youth participated in several days of leadership development training in addition to shadowing their member of Congress and meeting with senior White House officials. Expenses included flights, lodging, and food for youth as well as the associated staffing. National Foster Youth Institute also works in coordination with the Congressional Caucus on Foster Youth to bring together members of Congress, foster youth and alumni of foster care, state and local leaders, and leading child welfare experts to flesh out potential policy ideas, highlight best practices, and identify challenges with the implementation of child welfare laws. National Foster Youth Institute accomplishes this by organizing interactive round table discussions and listening tours across the country.
