Leaders Changing the System


Overview

P4P’s Leaders Changing the System (LCS), is a paid six week summer training and mentoring program created by P4P to train and recruit current or former foster and adoptive youth to our organization as executive team members or youth consultants who share in our organization’s mission and want to see it succeed.

As the executive team and our team of youth consultants are an integral part of raising awareness and actively trying to improve the child welfare system, we view LCS as a unique opportunity to enable emerging leaders from the child welfare systems to share and use their stories to make the child welfare system better.

LCS participants will build widely applicable professional skills through comprehensive trainings from experts in: communications, public speaking, storytelling, child welfare, and legislation advocacy. After completion of the program, emerging leaders will be presented with the opportunity to join P4P’s wider team and be paired with a volunteer mentor to help them continue on their journey to success. After further training, youth will later lead workshops in child welfare for current and future foster and adoptive parents and industry professionals in the child welfare system.
