Extended Foster Care
In 2010, California became one of the first states in the nation to extend foster care beyond the age of 18. The law offered youth who were facing the prospect of aging out of the system, straight into adulthood, a longer runway of support at a critical time in their lives. Our expert panel will discuss the origins of the plan, what has worked and what hasn't, and the future of extended foster care in the Golden State.

Moderated by Sara Tiano, a senior reporter for The Imprint.

Panelists:
Amy Lemley, Executive Director, John Burton Advocates for Youth

Janay Eustace, Executive Director, California Youth Connection

Jordan Sosa, Statewide Legislative & Policy Manager, California Youth Connection

Mark Courtney, Professor, University of Chicago Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy & Practice

Aug 26, 2021 10:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
