Do you know a youth in Foster Care or Independent Living or Young Adult Voluntary Foster Care who needs to learn about money management, employment, educational opportunities, health and wellness, or housing? If you do, then help them begin the registration process for the 2018 Michigan Teen Conference.

Youth must be ages 14 to 21 and in Foster Care or Independent Living or Young Adult Voluntary Foster Care. Youth with an open Juvenile Justice case, and no Abuse/Neglect case, are eligible to attend the conference if they are YIT eligible.

In order to be YIT eligible, the youth has to be placed in an eligible placement under the supervision of MDHHS (see FOM 950 for further details). 

If attendees are under the age of 18, a chaperone MUST attend the conference with them and accompany them at all times. Caretakers of the youth and professionals who work with teens are also invited. Attendees will sharpen their understanding of what is available and required for foster youth to make the challenging transition to adult life.
