Since 2005, Teen Trainers has been acting as educators and advocates for youths in the Foster Care System. Teen Trainers are a group of current and former foster care youth who speak to groups about their experience in foster care. Their goal is to reach out, volunteer and give back to the community. They share their personal stories of struggle and triumphs with the hope to inspire other foster youth, educate, and be the best they can. Their purpose is to clear the disbeliefs and increase the success of foster youth. Invite them to speak. Visit the Teen Trainers website to learn.
