On July 19 the Department of Children and Families (DCF) hosted the agency’s annual Foster Youth Summit for youth in our care. We were honored to be joined by Governor Patrick and Secretary Bigby to kick off this event. More than 100 youth participated in the summit, which offered workshops on financial literacy, higher education programs, career options, healthy living and community involvement.
The Department is proud of its foster youth and the summit is a wonderful opportunity for DCF youth to come together, share stories, and learn valuable life skills that will help them prepare for adulthood.
