Session 1| From Foster to …?
Dr. Keating created the concept of “From Foster to ” encourage foster youth to strive for their dreams and goals. She reminds foster youth of the importance of ﬁnding something they are passionate about and giving it all they can. In this in‐person workshop, Dr. Keating will share with Resource Parents her foster care journey, challenges, successes, and why she believes that education goes far beyond a degree and how they can encourage and support youth in their care to achieve their goals! And that’s by changing the narrative of how we encourage foster youth to help them ﬁnd their purpose in life.
