FosterClub All-Star program
My friend Lupe Ortiz-Tovar was a Foster Club All-Star during its second year of existence... and the experience changed her life!
Internships for Foster Youth FosterClub will select 12 young adults, ages 18 to 24, who have experienced foster care at some point in their lives, to participate in an internship program called the All-Star Program.
The interns will start their year-long commitment this summer at Portland State University in Portland, OR.
After a week of intense training, the All-Stars will travel the country participating in State Independent Living Conferences, various National Foster Care events, and more.
These interns will help other youth in foster care, earn approximately $3,600 over the summer, and improve their leadership skills. Completed applications are due by March 31, 2007.
