Therapist/Counselor Volunteer at Oregon Foster Youth Connection's Advocacy Convening, Salem, OR 

Oregon Foster Youth Connection (OFYC) empowers current and former foster youth to share their voices and to be heard in key decisions affecting children and youth in foster care. OFYC is youth led, meaning youth members shape every aspect of what OFYC is, how it is structured, which policies youth work on, and what activities they participate in. With support from Children First for Oregon staff, OFYC trains and empowers youth to actively participate in the development of policies, programs, and practices that improve the lives of the thousands of youth in foster care.

 

At this weekend event our 30-35 participants (14-24 years old) will be attending workshops that will challenge them emotionally and mentally. They will be thinking about things that didn’t go well with their transitions out of foster care or fears they have about their cases closing. They will be listening to their peer’s hard stories as well. While they will likely feel strong and empowered after the event, the weekend can be bumpy.

 

We would love YOUR support to help them get there. We would ask for you to be available from Saturday afternoon/evening through Monday afternoon (or a large piece of that). You would be available if a youth needs to step out of a session to talk, if they want you to just take a walk or play chess, if they need to talk over dinner, or at 9pm when things finally hit. YOU are an essential piece that enables youth to be present and open to learning and making big changes for future foster youth.

Here is a rundown of the schedule:

  • Saturday, Jan 26th – Monday, Jan 28th
  • Participants arrive at 1:30pm on Saturday, where they'll learn about OFYC and our Legislative Concept.
  • On Sunday, volunteers will learn about sharing their stories, practice public speaking and prepare for Monday's meetings.
  • On Monday, in small groups, participants will have about 4 meetings with legislators throughout the day asking for support for our Legislative Concept (soon to be a Bill). Participants will leave at 4pm that day.
  • Lodging for everyone is provided at the Best Western Mill Creek Inn in Salem.
  • All meals are provided.

Please reach out to Lisa McMahon at lisa@cffo.org if you have any questions, ideas of how you could be available for part, or are ready to jump in!
