Nov SYF Webinar: Unpacking the “No” of Older Youth Adoption

LIVE event: November 21st, 2019 | 1PM - 2:30PM EST, use coupon code OLDER at checkout to receive your free registration.


All youth in foster care need a permanent loving family. We know that adoption can provide a stable life-time family for youth in foster care, but at times, it can be difficult to help older youth in foster care see the value or need for a permanent family. In addition, it can be difficult to recruit and prepare families to adopt older youth.

This webinar will address the importance of permanency for older youth and how to effectively talk to them about adoption. The webinar will also address how to recruit and prepare potential adoptive parents for adopting and successfully parenting older youth.

LIVE event: November 21st, 2019 1PM - 2:30PM EST

Extended Access Available November 21st - December 20th, 2019
