Fostering Older Youth: Overview for Queer Men

DATE - 05/12/21


The average age of a young person in foster care is 8 — but many youth in the system are in their teens, and in some states even their early twenties. Older youth are often harder to place and are in especially high need of loving, supportive homes. What's more — older foster youth disproportionately identify as LGBTQ, and could benefit from a foster parent with a shared identity.

Time: 3:30PM EST - 4:30PM EST
