 THE PURPLE PROJECT's 10TH ANNUAL

"I BELIEVE IN ME" FOSTER CARE YOUTH CONFERENCE

JUNE 12-14,2019

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 10 Year Anniversary of the "I Believe In Me," Foster Care Youth Conference offers interactive seminars, workshops, panel sessions, and 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), Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland, Comfort Cases, One Simple Wish, Afjobe  Afrikan Village Inc, Harmony House, FAM, G&CO, The Aging Out Foundation, Speak Up Speak Loud,  and The Purple Umbrella. Our unique partnerships will introduce the youth to a variety of educational workshops, transitional planning discussions, panels, colleges, city tours, fun educational games and our awards gala designed exclusively for foster youth.
