Youth-Centered Profiles

Youth Centered Profiles incorporate the voice of older youth in foster care through a creative storytelling project.

The Youth-Centered Profile is used to assist in the search for a forever family. This unique opportunity gives youth the opportunity to take initiative in their own recruitment process, developing their profile using their own words. Youth are engaged in this process from start to finish, allowing them to be creative throughout the process.
