What Youth Say

The What Youth Say project gives youth in foster care the opportunity to complete a short writing prompt worksheet anonymously using the attached writing prompt sheet. Youth can also choose to do a short interview with the recruitment and retention communication specialist to share their feelings related to the prompt. Short excerpts from these writing prompts and interviews will then be shared as quotes. The quotes will be displayed as memes and will only identify the youth with the first letter of their name and their age with no other identifying information.
