WANT TO LEARN TO TAP INTO YOUR POTENTIAL TO SUCCEED?

The ASPIRING Young Leaders Program was built locally in Rhode Island as part of the ASPIRE Initiative to mirror the youth leadership training provided by The Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative. This leadership program will build upon the strengths of youth who have experienced foster care and empower young leaders across the state to succeed.

Upon completing the training, youth will have an increased understanding about issues in foster care and will have developed their leadership and advocacy skills to effectively engage in local advocacy work. Participants will create and have a network of relationships with peers and supportive adults across the state.

Young Leaders will participate in a three day leadership program, developing skills in:

  • Communication
  • Strategic Sharing
  • Relationship/Team Building
  • Self Advocacy
