2019 Leaders Changing the System Program

In April, P4P announced our Leaders Changing the System (LCS) program, 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. Over the course of six weeks, LCS participants built widely applicable professional skills through comprehensive trainings from experts in: communications, public speaking, storytelling, child welfare, and legislation advocacy.

In July, Partnerships for Permanence proudly announced the graduation of six bright young women from our 2019 Leaders Changing the System program ("LCS"). We can not imagine a better group of young people fit to bear the title of “Leaders Changing the System,” and we hope that they take that name to heart! A special thanks to our four LCS Expert Trainers: Lauren Causey, Sally Ankerfelt, George Gaetano, and Lola Adebara. They were instrumental in training this group, who we are happy to say, are now preparing for the next stage of the program - a year long volunteer mentorship! Thanks to everyone else for your continued support on this years-long mission.

BUSH CONNECT EVENT

It was great to finally be in a space with like-minded folks at the BushConnect event yesterday! It was a wonderful experience that reminded us - we are not alone. Despite the challenges and push back we sometimes face, we have to keep moving forward no matter what. Three key messages:

#1 Our stories do matter.

#2 Turn disadvantages into advantages.

#3 Collaboration is possible.

You just have to find people who share the same vision and can imagine the big picture even when you can't see it yet. Special thanks to Bush Foundation for the event and Danielle from Propel for the invite.
