What Is "I Believe In Me" All About?
As the population of youth who age out of the foster care system grows, there is an increasing need for education and resources aimed at helping to establish and prepare youth for a successful entry into society. The Purple Project’s 11th Annual I Believe In Me, Foster Care Youth Conference will offer interactive, workshops, panel sessions, and virtual exhibits dedicated to addressing the needs of youth who are on the path to “aging out” of the foster care system.
This event is in partnership with Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services, Lorain County Children Services, Lorain County Youth Leadership (LYFE), Harmony House, The Aging Out Foundation, Speak Up Speak Loud, Fill This House, Inspired 73, and the Sox Games. Our unique partnerships will introduce the youth to a variety of celebrity guest speakers, foster care alumni trainers, fun educational and interactive workshops, and will feature an online awards party designed exclusively for foster youth.
