Youth Conference


Essex County, NJ.  The annual conference serves children in foster care who are “aging out” of the foster care system.

Activities include:

  • A Drop-In Center – focusing on resume creation, cover letter writing, and researching & applying for financial aid
  • An Info Fair with exhibitors from colleges, trades, jobs, and youth services
  • Workshops, presenting topics on financial management, housing, wellness, and family
  • A poetry slam
  • A talent show

The conference provides much-needed guidance for children in foster care who are entering college and the workforce, and provides them with an opportunity to share their performing arts talents.
