Foster Success is excited to invite you to the Indiana Youth Advisory Board’s 2020 Normalcy Conference: The Year for Perfect Vision. Our team has needed to pivot, and to best respond to the culture of our world and state during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving the Normalcy Conference online.
We know this isn’t a traditional format, and it wasn’t an easy decision to make. We will stay true to the heart of the conference, bringing together youth, workers and partners to access information & resources that support the successful transition of all foster youth across Indiana!
Over the next month, we will be following up with communication on how and when to access sessions, sending additional materials, and offering support to host watch parties in your community!
For now, please RSVP to save your “seat” online please RSVP to save your “seat” online and stay up to date on all things Normalcy!
