Fostering the Future is turning 5 this month and May of course is also National Foster Care Awareness Month! With that in mind, this year’s Fostering the Future campaign has taken aim at a critical issue for the 670,000 youth that spend time in state care every year: education. For many, simply earning a high school diploma can be one of the greatest challenges of their young lives. Children’s Rights and foster care alumni across the country are “schooling” the nation this month on the issues youth in care face while simply trying to graduate high school! Watch our video Stability and join @Childrensrights in the fight for delivering the educational opportunities youth in foster care deserve.
