Video: Teens Who Have Aged Out of Foster Care Speak Out

These youth are on a mission to help teens who are aging out of foster care.

Denalee Chapman June 04, 2016

Created by former foster youth who aged out of foster care, this video is eye-opening to many who are unaware of the circumstances surrounding a youth in the foster care system. These three young people hit the streets with a camera in tow to find out just how much the public knows. And these youth are not just about informing—they created the site, as a resource for youth who find themselves ready to age out not knowing what’s next. Their resources include information about education, personal life, income, health, housing and more. As a means to educate, inform, and assist, they’re also available on social media:  Follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
