I enjoyed listening to your presentation about this topic. It is a very important conversation to have, and these youth need all the resources they can get. I like your policy recommendation and think that they would be very helpful to the kids who are aging out of the system. These children have a lot to handle as it is and having someone help them become more mentally stable could help them handle any challenges they face the rest of their lives. I really liked hearing about what you had to say on this topic.
Hi Emily. This was very informative about the issues our older foster youth population are currently facing. I found the buddy system to be an excellent suggestion. Awesome work!
Hey Emily. This was a great and very informative presentation! I loved your suggestion of the buddy system and I would have never even thought to see it that way. Thank you for informing us on a new and creative way to help out aging out foster youth.
Hey Emily. I really enjoyed watching your poster presentation as it is really informative and detailed. Thank you for educating me better on this issue and suggesting great policy recommendations such as the buddy system. It’s so important to ensure that the youth aging out of foster care is given all the help and resources to be stable as they move forward with their lives.
I loved this topic and it really spoke to me since my current field placement is in an emergency homeless shelter. After seeing boys at the age of 17, about to age out of child welfare and foster programs, I have a first hand account of witnessing experiences like this. It is incredibly important that social workers are able to help the youth who are aging out, since the language used in intervention will be different than counseling with an adult. Children suffering from lack of socialization and extensive mental health challenges require a strengths based approach and a support system building them up to help them face the challenges of the real world.
Hi Emily, what a wonderful poster and presentation. I really liked hearing about expanding the “Chaffee” Legislation to cover well needed benefits for youth aging out of the foster care system. I think that that is a wonderful idea, in addition to creating a buddy system to be able to have someone connect to. It would allow them to at least have one resource available to them that can offer help and support.
