Support four care experienced rangatahi from Aotearoa to attend the National Foster Youth Institute Shadow Day Conference in Washington DC.

Auckland

What happens when four cool care experienced youth advocates jump on a plane and head far across the waters?

Donate to find out how these young people will influence, represent and inspire other foster youth advocates at the National Foster Youth Institute Shadow Day in Washington DC!

Currently less than 10 percent of all care experienced youth attend university and even fewer graduate. Some might attribute this to a lack of opportunities in confidence building experiences. Imagine how international travel can expand the minds, hopes and dreams of care experienced youth?

Not everyone has the time or energy to travel across the world, but perhaps you have a few dollars (or a few hundred) to support these young magical kiwis to spread their wings and fly?

Support two 19 year olds, one 21 year old and one 23 year old to gain knowledge and insight on what it is like to be care experienced in other countries and work to make a difference. They will bring all of this back to Aotearoa New Zealand and share with other care experienced advocates.
