Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Children & Youth Services, Foster Care, Youth Development

Mission: FosterClub’s mission is to lead the efforts of young people in and from foster care to become connected, informed, inspired and represented so they can realize their personal potential and contribute to better outcomes for their peers.

Programs: Young leaders - young people with first-hand knowledge of the system is the foundation of the organization. We place young people at the table when important conversations are taking place that deserve foster youth perspective. In addition, we facilitate young leaders in speaking and public awareness roles that bring inspiration to child welfare professionals, foster parents and caregivers, courts, and other child welfare stakeholders.

policy & system change - fosterclub places young people in a position to impact the public policies that impact foster care and their own lives. Fosterclub captures the pulse of young people to influence broad-based system change in topics that matter to young people. Our public policy and practice recommendations are driven by authentic youth perspective.

membership & community - we build membership and community through our fosterclub. Com website, and through live outreach at events across the country. We encourage young people to engage with each other, ask questions, and gain peer support. The organization's primary communication vehicle, the website, is a hub of information relating to foster care, including articles, message boards, contests and stories. It's a resource available to youth 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

There is absolutely nothing bad to say about fosterclub!!! Not only does there website provide conection for foster youth all over the country its staff provides hope and knowledge of a better futur for youth in foster care!! This summer fosterclub came to Arkansas and helped our Youth Advisory Board put together the most amazing conference! Our conference was the first youth conference put together by youth and actually led by youth. Fosterclub led 2 workshops....foster-to-famoous.....fosterclub.com intro. They truly were a key factor in the success of our conference. Fosterclub taught me how to be a true leader. They provided training for myself and my fellow board members. And gave amazing suggestions. Life for youth in foster care has a positive future thanks to fosterclub. Their slogan "Built for Youth....Powered by Youth...Changing life for Youth in Foster Care" tells it all!!! Fosterclubs allstars are awsome, positive, and always willing to help! I say they diserve to win!!

Coined as "The little non-profit that COULD", FosterClub's determination and dedication is continuously surprising the youth members, foster parents, staff, partners, and other field members. I see this organization as a leader that works with their eyes wide open and their arms open even wider. Opportunity is greeted with optimism. The mission is carried out with creative innovations. The young people FosterClub serves are loyal and protective of this organization, and that is how you KNOW you have a top notch service provider! If the youth needing the knowledge and help the most are willing and driven to keep connecting at high levels. Please consider FosterClub for the Youth Thrive Award.

The best thing about FosterClub is that it is built for youth, powered by youth and changing life in foster care. I believe the young people who have experienced foster care and then use that experience to improve the system for their young peers are truly heroic.
