This 30-minute course first highlights the impacts of foster care and childhood trauma on youths and barriers they may face because of these factors. You also will be guided through learning about the rights of youth in care and how you are responsible for ensuring these rights are honored. Part of your role in the youth’s care team is understanding who the other players are and how they all connect, and this training introduces a variety of roles and touches on ways they interact.
There are many details about navigating the world that you may not even realize you have obtained, much less where you learned them. This course takes a fun look at the opportunities you have to teach important skills to youths, such as cooking together or making a budget. These activities in your home and community are central to launching into adulthood.
At the close of the course, you will be prepared to provide a great foundation from which the youth can continue to learn and engage in the world.
