Webinar: National Adoption Month

Oct 10

Thursday, October 10, 2:00–3:30 p.m. eastern time

Join us for this year’s National Adoption Month webinar, a collaboration of AdoptUSKids and Child Welfare Information Gateway, on behalf of the Children’s Bureau.

This year, the National Adoption Month initiative will focus on the thousands of teenagers and young adults in foster care who still need a loving, permanent family and a place to call home. The theme for the 2019 initiative is Youth Voices: Why Family Matters.

The webinar will:

  • Highlight the importance of permanency for older youth
  • Share information from Children’s Bureau grantees that can help professionals engage effectively with youth on planning for adoption
  • Let participants hear insights from youth and young adults about the importance of engaging with youth, listening to youth voices, and exploring why family matters to them
  • Provide information about resources and materials that can support your efforts in achieving adoption for older youth
