Session Description: 

How should you be involved in decisions about your own case plan? What's your role in designing or improving the programs and services that profoundly impact your life? In this session, we'll define youth/adult partnerships, discover why they’re important, and challenge participants to think outside the box about how youth and adults can work together! Not only does it benefit you, but could help change foster care (and maybe the world!).
