5th Annual Foster Youth Shadow Day at the Capitol

April 1, 2014

For  the 5th year, California Youth Connection and the California Foster Care Awareness Committee are hosting a Foster Youth Job Shadow Day and Reception. The event matches legislators with a current or former foster youth from his/her district or region. Youth – ages 16-24 – spend the day job shadow a legislator and his/her staff, including attending hearings, meetings, and getting an up-close look at the important work being done in the Capitol. In addition, youth are eager to share their stories and first-hand knowledge of the foster care system from their legislators.

 About Reception

This year, the day will start with a breakfast reception at 8 a.m. at Chicory Coffee & Tea, at 11th and L streets, where you can meet the youth participants and attend a short program, which will end by 9 a.m. Legislators, key stakeholders, community members, former foster youth and community members are invited to the reception.
