2019 FOSTER EXPO: EMPOWERMENT & MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS
Please be advised that registration will open Spring of 2019. Thank you for patience.
Focus: Empowerment & Mental Health
We are hosting our first an annual field day event called, Foster Expo, tailored to youth who are currently in or aged out of the foster care system. It’s a sponsored event hosted by Tragic is Magic, where we partner with organizations within the community to make this day one to remember. This event focuses on their personal development and mental health capabilities. Mental health is really important in this day in and age, when it comes down to their decision making, relationship building, career goals and academic achievements; their circumstances hinder them from everlasting success. Our goal is to strengthen and improve awareness and identity. Youth should be given the opportunity to develop their talents, skills and enhance their quality of life.
Our hopes is that Foster Expo will uplift and inspire youth to explore new horizons. We want our youth to utilize all the resources that we have to offer in order to be successful in life. Try imagining youth who are college graduates, employed, housed and enlightened rather than incarcerated, emotionally distress and homeless. This is their opportunity to network, learn and have some FUN.
National Foster Care Awareness Month
Magical May is National Foster Care Month, a month set aside to recognize foster youth, volunteers, mentors, child welfare professionals, and other community members who help children and youth in foster care find support and resources that they need to succeed.

We take pride in sharing the accomplishments of former foster care youth. Shoutouts shine a spotlight on foster care youth graduating from a four-year university in California.
Foster care youth have a variety of experiences growing up. Interviews give current and former foster youth an opportunity to share their experience in the foster care system.
